Just updated to Slack 9.1 , not a problem.
Upon installing my postfix server for mail I came across a problem.
I had'nt realized before that i was doing things oddly, but here goes.
I'm using netscape 7.1 mail, and have two accounts set up, one is my isp's mail (btopenworld POP3) and one is my own postfix server (Postfix IMAP using the setting in inetd.conf). Both work perfectly and i can send and recive mail from both accounts.
Upon setting up a laptop on my network, i was happily configuring my two mail accounts under netscape mail again, and noticed that netscape only requires one smtp entry, and uses it for both accounts. This happens to be my isp's mail.btopenworld.com. So aha !!! i'm not running my own smtp server. Never noticed this before. Probably because i had my isp mail setup on my main machine before postfix was sorted, so i must never have changed the smtp address over. This means however that all mail i send from postfix is routed through bt's smtp server..... That i don't want. So here's my question ::
1: How do i go about setting up an smtp server??
2: Would using that affect sending mail from my isp's account?? (not too bothered as i have my own mail server that WILL send).
I've looked under /etc/inetd.conf where i enabled imap, but nothing... HELP !!!! Not sure where to start , or even if slack has smtp built in somewhere as it does with pop3 and imap. I was told to use qpopper for pop3, but it's fine with it's own imap service, hence wondering if it's there tucked away somewhere.
