Working on all that currently or over the next few hours... I'm already using
mail.oceanfree.net as my mail relay so I don't need DNS in sendmail. I guess
I'll put mail.oceanfree in my /etc/hosts but that is already in my DNS cache
so it may not be necessary.
Oh look, my text autoformatting is working now! (That's for you Ken :0)
