Odd. My highly portable, personal laptop runs an MTA (which doubles as an MDA) that I use for sending both local and remote mail. The MTA just uses my VPS as a smarthost for remote mail, but it handles local mail so I can get notifications from cron, anacron, at, etc. All UNIX and Linux boxes should have an MTA. It doesn't always need to listen on 25 or 587, but both postfix and exim4 support that. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
