Loren and I use different fetchmail modes. Several reasons: 1) I dislike procmail 2) Fetchmail doesn't recommend procmail 3) All of my AV and Anti-Spam controls are set up in Postfix 4) Nearly all of the users on my system are 'virtual'. I was told that procmail either doesn't work or doesn't work reliably with 'virtual' users. 5) I already have Dovecot installed. I have no reason for another LDA. 6) Not all of the mail for this system is delivered via Fetchmail. -- Gerard _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
