The weird thing is i did reconfigure 3 times trying to get it to work even going back to just local mail only during the reconfigure but still nothing. So as a last resort i tried the purge and reinstall to see if it was just a messed up file or something and it worked. I usually wouldnt take this approach but if as a last resort and it does work hey why not. I am
very new to debian and using lenny so am learning as I go, thanks again for all your help!
