Hi.  I need some help with setting up my Linux to receive and sendmail.
I've gotten it to send mail but ... since I'm using TIA to get access


Dorsai.org is my access host where I get mail.
How can this be done?

Now for the second thing, how can I read (actually fetch) all of my
mail off of Dorsai onto my Linux machine (ie. my_host.com).  Remember,
I'm using TIA, so I'm not "really" on the Internet directly.

Please any and all help is appreciated.  Thanks.

First problem is solved several different ways.  The simplest way is to
configure your mailer to do this for you... I use pine 3.91, and in my

The second problem is solved by getting popclient from sunsite, compiling
it, and using it to "pop" your mail from your provider.

This seems to work for me ... but I'm a Mail and elm user.  Is there a
way to make this work for those programs?

Where on sunsite can I find this "pop" thingy?  And how do I install
it.  I'm new at this so, please bear with me.  Thanks gagain.

1. Help smail/smail+term problems

Hi

I have upgraded my smail to smail+term from termify0.3
I have the two unrelated problems
1. when an non super user mail the mail is not delivered and
    when using the -v option
   I get the following message.

   creat_spool failed!

   smail worked prior to the change, smail works fine locally for root.
   it looks like a permission problems, I have check the files, and they look
   OK. Any ideas how to debug or fix it.

2. mail dose not go outside the local machine.
   when I type:

   I get the following.
Subject: test
.
EOT
Null message body; hope that's ok
new spool file is /var/spool/smail/input/0rD5n1-0002EuC
write_log:received
|            from: root
|         program: send-mail
|            size: 99 bytes


transport termsmtp uses driver tcpsmtp
transport termsmtp: connect to host localhost [127.0.0.1]/2025...transport
termsmtp: connect: Connection refused

Connection refused

I have added the following entry to /etc/services, and it did not help either.
termsmpt        2025/tcp        mail

Any help will be appreciated
Thanks
