It works fine after you set everything up: $ id uid=1001(giorgos) gid=1001(giorgos) groups=1001(giorgos), 21(ftp) $ mailq -Ac /var/spool/clientmqueue is empty Total requests: 0 $ mailq /var/spool/mqueue is empty Total requests: 0 $ - Giorgos To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
