For this one I would suggest the command 'df -h'. The -h switch means you want to see it in 'human readable form'. > Also I saw I have exim installed and I have a smtp service running.

I use sendmail, and it's been a little while since I set up exim, but, if you know what to edit and put in the exim.config file I don't know why that wouldn't work. That is if you know. You could run the command 'eximconfig' and choose to the 'Smart Host' option (I think) and then put in your company's mail host as the relay machine. Hope that's right. > Thnak you all > Bye > Adri > I hope that helps a little, Jimmy Richards > -- > To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to email@example.com > with a subject of "unsubscribe". Trouble?
