We've just got ourselves a Sys V.4 UNIX box. Unfortunately its mail
system is a little strange. Don't get me wrong, it works OK - except
daemon transmogrifies addresses into uucp format :-(
I want to install elm on the new system, and I don't want the users to
to have to replace the whole mail subsystem...
Our current UNIXes (Sys V.3 ish) run elm as the MUA, with sendmail as
the MTA. We use SMTP inhouse with UUCP connections to the outside
world. On the gateway we use smail 2 as the UUCP router.
This Sys V.4 machine only need to understand SMTP (it's not going to be
the UUCP gateway), so do I go for sendmail (which I understand), or
something else like smail 3 or mmdf (neither of which I understand).
We don't run a nameserver, and we're not likely to for several months
yet either. Source code must be available. Does this rule out
Comments please. I'll summarise email if it looks like it'll be
