Thanks a lot.
I guess I didn't spend as long reading the docs as I thought I had.
I'm presuming that running sendmail -q from /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail will
send mail automatcally, or do I actually have to log in as root to send
off my mail when connected? It's not a major hastle, but it's a hastle :)
I did run sendmail -q, but no mail was sent. At the time I thought it was
because I'd done something wrong in configuration, but I think now it was
a typo in the smtp server.
I'll have another go at it tonight. Thanks again for all the help.
