Thanks their website is not exactly, well it reads more like a man page in 
Swahili, and I'm American and cant read Swahili.

On a more serious note. There site is not very informative really. Spouting 
off rfc and blah blah this and that. If it were not in mandrake already I 
would never have taken the time to work with it from the way their site is. 

Is there a cyrus how to or anything like the qmail.org or qmail hot to pages 
that make things extremely clear if I want to look for it.

To finish up thanks for the explanation. I understand completely that it will 
not send mail for that we still need postfix, qmail without pop, or shudder 
sendmail.  I was just not wording myself correctly. What do you use for smtp?
