Re: Summary - Sparc mail issues

If that's your main purpose, I'd suggest ssmtp instead - it only 
routes mail outbound to a mail server, no need to worry about 
security or anything else.  Just point it at your SMTP server 
and away it goes.  Best solution for that.

Of course, I realize that you've already set it up now.  :)
