Hush! No sendmail hating :P. I remember it being a right of passage to graduate to a ^real^ UNIX admin when you had lost half of your hair while working on sendmail.cf. In a era now long gone, I remember carrying the sendmail bible (thick with detailed instructions on cf vars) as protection vs. say a baseball bat. The Sendmail manual was thick, heavy and while I never did use it as a weapon; I had imagined many times throwing it at a server and see if that maybe fixed the problem with sendmail.cf. I've worked with MTA's a lot. I have hated and loved Sendmail. ATM, I am back in my I <3 Sendmail mode and have it running quite well -- with a lot of cool milters on some of my servers. But sendmail is not for the faint of heart, or ones who are at risk of hair loss. In fact, I would highly discourage sendmail use in the latter case. > My exaggerated view of sendmail as a user: [...] Poof..that's easy :P > > # Uncomment if you want STARTTLS support (only used in combination > > with # SECURETRANSFER) #STARTTLS > > Yes please.

What you posted was mostly mc stuff anyways. I would be far more impressed if you would have debugged that in the cf or via sendmail flags. :))) I often use ssmtp on servers that run Wordpress etc and collect most mail to a mailhub which routes it internally and externally.
