3/9     Assuming no .mailrc file where does the "mail" command pull the
        domain for the outgoing email address?
        \_ The system-wide mailrc if it exists (often /usr/lib/mail.rc or
           such, see the man page) - otherwise it gives none and lets
           sendmail add it.
           \_ Not everyone runs sendmail.
                \_ Yes, but everyone is going to have some sort of mail
                   delivery agent.  Nice try.
                \_ But mail/mailx are usually hardcoded to run sendmail,
                   so people who run something else have to replace the
                   sendmail binary with something to call their preffered
                   MTA.
              \_ soon, every MUA worth using will support MSA
                 \_ What's the advantage of MSA over SMTP?
                    \_ What's MSA?
                    \_ is it an addition to, not a replacement for SMTP
                       think MTA agnostic way for MUA's to submit messages
                       to any SMTP MTA.  write to socket (AF_UNIX or INET)
                       You can also have more flexibile relay rules.  Lock
                       down port 25, have port 587 (MSA) more open for
                       things like remote pop/imap users.

9/9     What should outbound mail server be when reading mail from soda
        with IMAP? Is there a FAQ?
        \_ It's <DEAD>mail.csua.berkeley.edu<DEAD> (same as for incoming mail).
           \_ "The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP
               server <DEAD>mail.csua.berkeley.edu<DEAD> failed. The server may
               be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections."

11/18   Say I've written a pcap-based program which pulls out the message
        body of unencrypted SMTP sessions and writes those into file1 file2
        file3 ... fileN. Is there a simple way to get a spam-score for
        each of those [based on message body, not SMTP headers, sender
        reputations etc]. I'd like to have a program warn me if some
        IP address inside my institution starts sending say >10 suspect

7/14    Help sendmail experts. I forward email from my own domain to
        http://gmail.com. I have never had any problem until recently. The problem
        happens only when eBay sends an email to my domain (as
        member@ebay.com). I receive the mail on my domain/my machine, and
        when it tries to forward to gmail, I get the following:
         Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; host <DEAD>gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com<DEAD>[w.x.y.z]

1/28    When I run Thunderbird to use my soda mail, I can read mail but I can't
        send.  It gives an error "Sending of message failed.  The message
        could not be sent because connecting to SMTP server
        <DEAD>mead.CSUA.Berkeley.edu<DEAD> failed. ......"  Is there some special setup
        that I need to configure in order to send mail?  Thanks.
        \_ Just use your ISP's SMTP server to send mail. Soda probably
