Kevin, thanks. I did that and so far the logs look good (I haven't seen the message yet). Two concerns. 

1. I already have an entry in /service pointing to /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-smtpd. Does this still need to be there? 
2. If I don't want to mess with putting this under supervise, should it then run at the end of rc.local? 
3. If I did want to try my hand at setting it up under supervise, where would you put the run file?
