Yep, altho I'm not sure why or how: root inetd 24764 7 tcp4 *:110 *:* I commented out pop3 and reinitialized; then the socket was 113. --This is a bit over my head; 113 is given to auth.

Anyhow, I use > sylpheed-claws (basically the more cutting edge version of sylpheed). I used portupgrade for all but 11 of my out-of-date ports. It's great.

I consider what I use to be decent :P > I'll give sylpheed a look. I really prefer discreet tools than bundled/bloat. Use mutt 99% of the time. So when I find a decent GUI client, I'm gonna rebuild mozilla sans' the mailer. thanks el-mucho! gary -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public service Unix _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
