Here's what I figured out for myself.

Sendmail is an SMTP server - and included with Slackware. Other valid alternatives for SMTP are Exim and Postfix (not included with Slackware by default). For imap/pop3, Slackware includes imapd and ipop3d. I actually don't know much about these two last packages, as I never used them. I always use Dovecot - which is a fine imap/pop3 server.

@kikinovak - you wouldn't happen to have that link in English, would you ?

Google Translate does a pretty good job on that web page.

Don't be lazy; learn French. :)

Ho ho. Well - my country has 11 official languages, of which I can speak 2 fluently. I did German to matric, but that was 33 years ago and now I remember nothing of it. I can also understand Dutch - as long as they speak slowly - but they don't.

I watched a documentary a few weeks back, and on it they claimed that the French would rather you not spoke their language if you couldn't do it properly. And I'd hate to upset a Frenchman !

Dovecot is a nice pop3/IMAP server.

I'm not a Frenchman. I'm only an Austrian who happens to live and work in France. My HOWTOs are all written in French for two reasons:
  1. I use them for teaching.
  2. They're raw material for my print books.

I have the project of translating them to english for the Slackware Documentation Project, but I've had to delay this several times. Presently I'm working pretty much every day, and there's no hours left in my life.

He, Niki? I wasn't kidding about Google Translate -- there's virtually nothing in that particular document that didn't translate clearly and understandably. Must be that tech stuff is common enough across languages to come out nicely or something (or maybe that the author did a really good job of writing, eh?).

All member-created content should be in English.
Lets try to keep it this way. So that everybody here on LQ can participate in discussions and contribute and learn from each other.

And like it or not, at least at this moment in time English is the international language, that allows people from different countries and backgrounds to communicate with each other.

Who knows what the future holds. ;)

Although I know you do some teaching for living, I'm always surprised by the quality of your writings and the amount of documentation you produce !

Congratulation and thanks again ! :)

Cheers

Garry.

You're just lucky that Napoleon sold half of North America to spend money in killing half of Europe.

The prospect of the changeover, however, led to much alarm in the non Hindi-speaking areas of India, especially Dravidian-speaking states in South India whose languages were not related to Hindi at all (see examples at right). As a result, Parliament enacted the Official Languages Act in 1963, which provided for the continued use of English for official purposes along with Hindi, even after 1965.
English allows people in the south and north of India to communicate, which they otherwise could not.

You know - for crying out loud - nobody cares what you do in your neighborhood. This is about being able to communicate with people way outside your little world.

And for better or worse, at the moment it's English. And in the future maybe Mandarin. ;)

Communicate and learn.
