1. IP Masquerading problem?


I have a 486-66 running Slackware96(2.0.29). My problem is when sending
mail using 'EXMH' I get the error

Denied' I've been able to use 'FETCHMAIL' to retrieve my mail at my ISP,
but when I try to send mail to myself(just testing) at my ISP it won't
work. I'm using 'SENDMAIL' as my tranfer agent(?). I'm not quite sure if
I need to do something about IP Masquerading? My user name and hostname
on my home machine is different the my ISP. What is IP Masquerading
exactly? Is my problem that my ISP doesn't recognize my machine

email? Is this what IP Masq. is all about?

When I use Netscape, I can send and retirve email with no problems, but
I would like to use another app. for email sending and retrieving.
