IMO, nobody should run qmail's smtp daemon these days. However, since 
you've asked on the qpsmtpd list, perhaps you intend to run qpsmtpd. Good.

You don't say why you want to run on port 2525 instead of port 25. If it 
is to work around ISP traffic blocking, then I would recommend that you 
use iptables port forwarding (DNAT) to send port 2525 traffic to port 25, 
and use a standard install of qpsmtpd.

Alternatively, when you start qpsmtpd-forkserver, use "-p 2525" instead of 
"-p 25".

Have you read any qpsmtpd documentation? Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
