I have Mandy 8.2, and I have sendmail. Check the "networking" section of the install.

i selected absolutely everything except for the firewall/gateway one, i swear to god i did.

selected to install all the packages again except for the firewall/gateway and it says it has 0mb to install, implaying that everything is already installed from those packages.

8.2 prefers to use postfix as a default smtp relay, instal that instead, it's meant to be a lot easier to install and maintain aswell.

Well buddy, I will check when I get home, but I think it does come on the CD. That up there is a link to what should be on your CD. Also, you may have to do a "select individual packages" install to get it on there.

Cool

ShawnD, al these programs have their own websites and very extensive documentation, i'd recommend you have at look at the docs that exist.

You use postfix in nearly the same way as sendmail. Postfix fits sendmail's place very good. For some extra applications allowing you to do more things, browse postfix webiste. Many interesting links.
