Thanks for the info.

I decided to stop using my MS mail client, and replaced sendmail 
on my unix box with ssmtp, which is a lot simpler. I think there are
3 configuration options to it. I use pop3 so I am also using fetchmail 

I used gtk-send-pr at the last place I worked, and although it is nice,
I don't know if it addresses the issue of mail access to freebsd's gnats 
server from a private host. The access problems are a relatively new 
development since the last time I submitted a port.

Although the port I submitted got forwarded by someone who picked it 
up in bugbusters mailing list, it also got mangled in the forwarding process.
Since it now has a tracking number, I don't know if I should resubmit it
or just wait.
