Re: HELP: More Problems Configuring Email

    Denis, go to the "FAQ-O-MATIC" at the debian site
(www.debian.org), and find the FAQ about SMAIL configuration
for dynamic accounts (you _do_ have a single-user dynamic

    And if you have a dynamic IP account, also change the
visible name to your ISP's domain name (for example,
isp.com) without the "@" symbol or the username.  I have
no idea what the extra "postmaster" line will do to an
smail config.  It appears to be something that belongs in
your /etc/aliases file if at all.

    Disregard this reply if you have your own domain with
more than one user account with your ISP.  Hope it helps.
Anyone else...corrections, additions, etc.?
