system must connect to the outside world and read the specified mailboxes.
I have installed smail but I can't seem to find anything in the

3) Internal network - Ethernet

4) Internet connection - diald/ppp with ip masquerading

5) Test to run receive and dispatch mail for smartin@reuna.cl from the

Any bright ideas?
