Hrm. I have followed the howto word for word and here is where I break down.
At the step to test it by putting an IP into the file and rebuilding the
.db, it still fails to work. I can still send to my domain thru the smtp but
always could. Even in my intranet, I was never able to use the smtp as a
relay for outside. And still I cannot. Another issue is with the init file.
When I execute it, no matter what command i pass it, it never says anything
back to me. It doesn't even give usage. But the thing is, I am technically
not even on that step yet. Thanks again for the program. Just need to keep
priming it to get it to work. Thanks for your response.
