the problem was: the auth = mailfrom .... line was in the global config, and that needed to be in the directory for the list. I commented the auth line out of the 'global config' /usr/local/etc/minimalist.conf and added it to the file 'config' under the 'farm' directory. yay it works now. thanks rob for pointing me at minimalist. _________________________________________________________________ Make every e-mail and IM count.
