Okay, I admit it. I don't understand unix mail. I have been quite happy
using netscape for mail on a dialup ppp link. I tell it to send/get
messages and then I disconnect and read the stuff.
However, I have some robots which I'd like to use to attempt to control
the amount of spam I'm receiving (with this message it'll increment once
again). However, these programs don't understand netscape mail and
insist on using 'mail'. All that mail does is to deliver the message to
the mail queue.
So, now that I have a message in the queue, how do I get it off my
machine and out into the real world? I suspect it has something to do
with sendmail, but trying to get that to work from the man page is
I guess that once I get this working I could use all the different mail
programs (ie, tin, mail, etc) as an alternate to netscape. I also suspect
that whatever the secret sendmail incantation is, I can have this as part
of my ip-up script? I'm not sure how I can ensure that I don't disconnect
during the uploading, but I'm not at the point yet....
