I have a Mandrake 8.1 Linux System and am using a modem and dial up account to access the internet. Sorry to say I use MSN so I cannot send or recieve mail although I can browse the internet. I have another e-mail address through the host of my web page, however they do not provide an outgoing smtp server for sending mail. I can only recieve. So I am looking for an outgoing smtp server that just handles sending mail for linux. I would love a JAVA solution (and I know I could write one myself if I wanted to take the time, however, I do not want to re-invent the wheel if someone has already done it) for this but will settle for anything that does not require me compiling and configuring every little detail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi - If you google for "smtp+linux" you will find a couple of commercial products.
There are a number of ongoing projects at:
www.sourceforge.net
at least one Java based. Can't vouch for any of them. Maybe that is what you are trying to avoid tho' ........

Dear Gregg,
Every linux distro comes with Sendmail (A wellknown SMTP server) installed, if it is not installed in your Mandrake, you can always do it from your distro CDs.
Once you have Sendmail installed, you can send mail to anydomain on the internet from your machine using dial-up.
Further, you may configure popular mail clients like netscape, mozilla or Kmail (KDE) to connect to your homepage's pop3 server
Please revert to the forum if you need more help

Thanks guys. Does anyone know what the SendMail RPM name is or where the binary is stored if it is installed at compile time. I have looked for it but cannot seem to find anything resembling SendMail.
Thanks

Greg - Go to
www.rpmfind.net
search argument is 'sendmail'. There are MD rpms listed there as well as for RH.
