Yes It definately was sendmail, no doubt about it, and double checked it
to be sure. Actually it seems the login problem was a simple matter.
Somhow on upgrade the smtp got disabled, after enableing it, I had no
problem. checking email, and it seems so far that the email server is
accepting some emails. I sent from another account and recieved it
fine, yet I also sent some from my yahoo account, but have not recieved
those as of yet. but I will keep working on it.
