Sorry for the inconvenience but I was using the Evolution mailer which
has somehow sends the messages but does not get the emails. So I
generated email I could not read. I will have to remove Evolution and
reinstall (I had reinstalled over the current installation) but that did
Thank you for your help. I was assuming Lucid came with both the clients
and servers but it appears not to be the case as you pointed out. With
the help I received I was able to get SSH, TELNET, and FTP connections
to the Lucid machine but I was not able to get the "connect to a server"
menu items working. I did not have this problem with an earlier version
of Lucid. I notice differences between the older Lucid and the newer
Lucid machines even though they are getting similar updates. My third
Ubuntu machine is much older (8.04) and the updates never did work.
Thank you all for your help.
If you can find time it would be nice to get the "connect to a server"
menu working as well as NTF.
I tried all the examples. I did have it working but it quit when I shut
down the system and after that the command I used to set it up no longer
Thanks -- Ted Hilts
PS. Guess I'll sent email to my wife (in the next room) so my tinkering
with Evolution won't have such a negative outcome.
