I realize that wasn't really flame warfare. But I will say that even
at my semi-literate level of literacy I've been able to get sendmail
working since somewhere in the mid 90s, over many distros and
upgrades etc. Always a bit of hassle since it seems the lap between
bouts is usually long enough for me to forget just about all of
whatever I learned
And the above summary held true here too, once I got the installation
right... (which wasn't sendmails' fault), about 45 minutes or so
later.. I had a running mail server.
comcasts authentication is a bit tough first time out but this time I
remembered enough to get it right on the first writing of authinfo
I wonder if anyone here has tried the `perlMx' style of spam control.
I've been using spamassassin for quite a while and its pretty good
with no real effort.
Can anyone comment on perlMx?
