sendmail, dialup and slackware
 
Can anyone point me to a howto or something to help me to configure sendmail over a ppp connection. I use at&t worldnet service and I have the dialup connection working with kppp (couldn't get the pppsetup to work but that's another story). I'm having a really hard time with documentation because it's either impossible to understand or the various howto's are so different that nothing makes sense. thanks for any help.

pppsetup, sendmail, fetchmail, mutt
 
eccarlsen,

to make your connection with pppsetup, just type as root in your command line ppp-go.
This command(ppp-go) will show the information about your and yours provider's DNS.
If you preffer to the system not show these informations, type ppp-go -q.
To disconnect, just type ppp-off.

As you, i'm in a doubt with how to configure sendmail, to send my mails whit mutt.
There is one more question: how do i set up fetchmail to fetch my mails in a pop server
as a normal user?


Thanks.

I actually got the dialup connection working fine with kppp. The pppsetup utility didn't work for me. To configure fetchmail just run the fetchmailconf program. I got that working, just not sendmail. That fetchmailconf program pops up a little graphical interface and you enter data about your various mailboxes and what not, it's pretty easy and self-explanatory. Thanks for the post.

Don't get misleaded by the Red Hat in the title, it's easy to do in Slackware what the article says.
