Well, I have had sendmail enabled, but my outgoing mail gets bounced with a message saying that Comcast has blocked the process. I have the feeling that there is a problem with how I am supposed to use my hostname. When I run hostname -r I get .hsd1.ca.comcast.net. As you can tell, I am a relative newbie, and not very well versed in all of these things. But I love the process of trying to get it figured out.
