8/26    I need to attach a word doc to an email, but my ISPs smtp server
        has been down for a couple of days. Anyone know how to attach a
        word doc (mimencoded) via mh? Or alternatively, how can I convince
        netscape to use soda as the outgoing SMTP server? Simply putting
        in doesn't seem to work.
        \_ use hotmail or some other web mailer...
        \_ you can use soda as an smtp server using ssh port forwarding.  you
           could also transfer the file to soda via ftp or zmodem or whatever
           and mail the file from there
           \_ Getting the file to soda is easy, but I have no idea how to set
              up the port forwarding to make this work. Any pointers?
              \_ ssh -ljondoe -L 6666:csua:25 csua
                 then use port 6666 on your local computer as your smtp server
              \_ if you can get the file to soda, can't you just e-mail it as an
                 \_ How do you attach a file to a e-mail message using a cli
                    client? Sorry I'm /bin/mail and mh, and I've never had to
                    deal with this mime stuff till very recently.
                    \_ Use mpack & munpack, or, if you don't want to deal
                       with mime at all, uuencode and uudecode.
        \_ you can use metasend.  Or you can use pine (for just one message)
           \_ This looks perfect. Thanks.
        \_ Read the mhbuild man page to do it in mh,
                or use mpack (quicker, easier)
        \_ Why wouldn't you just use Yahoo mail, or Hotmail, from your local

7/29    How do I get pine to work with mail? I have 1900 mails and I want
        to delete them. Or is there a better one to use? never learned
        \_ mutt
           \_ so why doesn't alpine work? What setting should I use to have
              it work with my csua mail folder? Thanks!

3/10    What email program do people in Cal CS use nowadays?  In my school days
        people used /usr/bin/mail, then RMail in emacs, then VMail in emacs.
        After my days people used Elm, Pine, Mutt (I forgot which order).  In
        my first two jobs we could tell the seniority of fellow engineers based
        on which email program they use at work, because everyone used what
        they used to use in their school years.  In my last two jobs though,

2/20    There was a failure validating the SSL/TLS certificate for the server
        The reason for the failure was
                          self signed certificate in certificate chain (details)
        We have not verified the identity of your server. If you ignore this certificate validation
        problem and continue, you could end up connecting to an imposter server.

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

12/9    Does anyone know of a good blogging software that can
        handle blogging entries as well as photo albums?
        Wordpress and the WP Gallery plugin is too tricky to

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
