Look, I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, I was trying to explain to you why you're having so many problems. I can't PM you because I'm not a member, but I just sent you an e-mail.

In short I'm not trying to discourage questions and curiosity, those are good things! I'm saying if you want help, then you have to be willing to be helped (and follow some common curtesy to those helping you).

PS if you can't handle criticism, don't ever venture close to OpenBSD. The OpenBSD mailing lists contain flames that would melt your underwear from the monitor radiation.

Hmmm...??

Where do you both want to go from here...

I'll take a stab and guess that jules_fraser still has a problem...
And that chort and others are still available to give advice...

Do you want to continue jules_fraser ??

I e-mailed him with my real personal information just to show that I'm not throwing grenades from behind a mask of anonimity, but he never replied. I'm still willing to help if my advice won't be ignored.

Have been away for a few days working in Wales and have just got back. No chort, I do not have a problem with you and more importantly cannot afford to piss off members to whom I may well have to refer back to for advice at some point in the future.

Your earlier jolt up the arse has actually done some good and a few more late nights has produced the result that I wanted. My Postfix server is now up and running, handing out mail, spam and God knows what else to various usr's. Am now having a go at SquirrelMail and have managed to configure this also.

I guess the moral of this episode is that postings to this Forum should be made only ABSOLUTELY when one has exhausted every other avenue before hand, (what would we do without Google, can you imagine if MS had taken it over?)

Well I'm glad you got everything working!

I would have to slightly disagree with the moral that you took away from it. I would say that posting to this forum should only be done if you're an open-minded individual. You should be prepared for such answers as "just google it" or "read the man page for such and such" and then actually follow that advice. The same goes for specific advice, you should follow it, or else if you don't and instead do your own thing, then post more questions, you should indicate what you actually did since your last question, since everyone will assume you followed the advice given unless you state otherwise.

Linux will always be one long learning experience. Following advice was never one of my string points, but sometimes when the individual has given that said advice, it can be very embarrassing to ask for clarification.

There are some in-depth things about Linux that I now know hand over fist, but sometimes it's the small tiny things that go a rye. Not to worry.

On a different note, what do you know about SquirrelMail?

Only that it uses an IMAP backend. Other than that, I've never set it up so I don't know.
