more mail and security..
Thanks a lot (Michael)...
That makes sense. I tend to get a bit paranoid (as if I was blind and fearful of tripping).
I've given myself alot of stuff to practice. Since I don't really understand mail, I just tried to work around it--now I've got
lots of different mail packages installed that I want to get rid of. Actually, mutt-exim-fetchmail would be fine, but I don't
quite understand it.
with mail clients in general, you must specify a pop and smtp server. now, with exim, (or any mta?) I am the smtp server,
right? I wrote a test message with mutt, and it arrived, but identified me as only "root". so do I have to give myself an
alias, or what?
What's keeping me from having a header that reads, email@example.com, as opposed to firstname.lastname@example.org?
I've seen the "percent hack" at work in someone elses header..is that what I need to use?
Thanks for your patience...I'm an idiot!
