I'm not sure if this is a problem or not !
I sent myself an email, to check the headers (I had some probs
with not having localhost defined in my 'local-host-names' file)
and I get these headers... (see below)
I'm using fetchmail to poll the mail.nuvotem.com box.
I'm using some procmail rules to sort the incoming mail into
I'm surprised to see the path being:
localhost -> declan
declan -> declan
declan -> mail
mail -> declan (pop3)
Is this right, or have I too many steps ?
I have my sendmail (8.12.5) configured as a 'nullclient'.
Should I somehow bypass the sendmail n my local box, and tell mutt
to pop the mail from 'mail.nuvotem.com' and smtp the mail
to 'mail.nuvotem.com' ?
