The only current reference that I had when I made that post was for version 5.7.2 which states in it's man page: "In ETRN and ODMR modes, fetchmail does not actually retrieve messages; instead, it asks the server's SMTP lis- tener to start a queue flush to the client via SMTP. Therefore it sends only undelivered messages." I've not used fetchmail for quite some time simply because I've no need to do so. If that's not the current version, then that may have changed considerably. But, as you stated, the OP was asking about smtp-auth via sendmail. -- Micheal Patterson Network Administration TSG Incorporated 405-917-0600 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
