If you didn't change the port, then their smtp daemon is listening for your traffinc on port 25 of the same server that they're running pop3 on. This isn't too uncommon. If the OP was asking about getting the ISP smtp server to send to his sendmail. For that to happen, at minimum, the following has to be done. He's got a static ip and the isp places a forward on his ISP account to forward to [EMAIL PROTECTED] and his system is configured to accept mail for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, or, he has a domain assigned with an mx record pointing to his home system. Fetchmail can't retrieve mail from an smtp server that I am currently aware of as it's designed to speak pop protocol and then deliver it locally to an awaiting smtp server for local delivery. -- Micheal Patterson TSG Network Administration 405-917-0600 Confidentiality Notice: This e-mail message, including any attachments, is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information.
