Re: Windows XP, inetd, and procmail, fetchmail, and mutt
I have been playing with ssmtp, trying to set it up as my local mail
relay. I would like to have it run as a daemon. Is there a way to do that?
I tried postfix, but it doesn't compile out of the box (it doesn't know
what OS "CYGWIN_NT-5.0 1.3.6(0.47/3/2)" is) and it this is more of a
"lets see if I can get this to work" type of project, not something I
must get working.
From my reading of the man page it appears that ssmtp does not run as a
daemon, it needs to be called by MUA to send that mail. Is this correct?
