All of the available MTAs will do that, because the standard Unix API for an application to send e-mail is for that app to pipe the message into the STDIN of /usr/sbin/sendmail. Alternative MTAs have always therefore provided a high degree of sendmail compatibility and expect to have binaries either installed as or linked to /usr/sbin/sendmail. Unlike most other Unix or unix-oid systems, FreeBSD has a slightly more sophisticated variation on this. /usr/sbin/sendmail is actually a wrapper program and not Sendmail Brand sendmail(tm) at all -- see mailwrapper(8) for details. Simply by editing the configuration file /etc/mail/mailer.conf you can switch between sendmail-from-the-base-system, sendmail-from-ports, exim, postfix, qmail, ssmtp and probably half a dozen others. mailer.conf also covers a number of other sendmail related commands like newaliases(1) and hoststat(8). The sendmail binary provided by the base system is installed as /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail Cheers, Matthew - -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 7 Priory Courtyard Flat 3 PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Ramsgate Kent, CT11 9PW -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.4 (FreeBSD) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFG532p8Mjk52CukIwRCNs/AJ0RFvgkiy4li9cbEIk12lvvCbQoWACeIMCv fKLLVxwgZZ+VXFkybTDM3H8= =qDx2 -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
