I set my sendmail to issue that in response to some spammer foolishness about opt-in and opt-out and their bogus assertion regarding opting-out of their mailings. What is more to the point is that your message was rejected because your connecting domain, lnk.telstra.net was entered into my local, private, set-and-forget blocklist a long time ago for sending spam. Thank you for attempting to reply to my question, though. [The telstra.net entry in my blocklist has also been removed]. The pointers sent regarding incoming PPP have veen very useful. The last time I set this up I was on a BSDI system, and the protocol was handled by pppd, not the ppp client. I kept looking for pppd related info, and didn't look at the (newer) ppp client pages. > > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" -- -=[L]=- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
