Setting up smail for SMTP

Setting up smail for SMTP

Could someone help me with setting up smail for my Debian box?

I tried to do it, and I think it's working, but am not sure. There
aren't many questions to ask, but I'm not 100-percent sure on how
to answer each one.

Fetchmail is already configured and working; but it complains that
the SMTP sniffer (I'm assuming this is smail) doesn't like user
pcr387...this'll make sense in a minute.)

Here's my information:
 User: david
 Localhost: milwaukee

 My ISP user ID: pcr387
 My SMTP/POP3 server:

When configuring smail, I thought that my "smarthost" should be my
SMTP server. I don't know, though.

If I were to do the "Internet configuration" of smail, how would
the above variables come into play?


PS: I just read the newsgroup using slrn! And I'm writing this message
ini vi.
