One thing to note in Matthew's reply: > that. However, automatic e-mails from your system -- usually from > the periodic(8) scripts -- do require sendmail(8) or equivalent.
Two words at the end, "or equivalent." You can run Courier, Exim, Mini Sendmail, Nullmailer, Postfix, Qmail, ZMailer, so on and so forth. All have advantages and disadvantages. Personally, I use Postfix, but that is because for my needs it is better. If you have trouble reducing sendmail down to your needs, look at the documentation on the others. One of them might suit you better. Your mileage may vary, so on and so forth. --Eric _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
