Somehow I managed to get both elm and pine for nto, but no local
mail program like /bin/mail, mailx, or even procmail.
This machine does not have a domain name, so it makes dns requests
for one of its short names. This doesn’t work so the /var/spool/mqueue
directory is filling up with unsend mail. The mail is to local
users (ie email addresses with no `@’).
This machine is running without a console.
I have yet to setup RTP as a mail server - right now I just use it
as a forwarding client.
However, for sendmail to work properly, I believe that the host
must be properly configured (ie have a a domain name).
I don’t want sendmail to work properly, I just want local mail to work.
The sendmail.cf that I have claims it needs /usr/bin/mailx as the
local mailer anyway, but I have no /usr/bin/mailx.
Basically I want my testing scripts to be run by cron and have the
results mailed to me on the same machine. Cron is suppose to do this
by default, but I can’t get cron work either.
