    Another angle on this…home use? (Score: 1)

    Another thing that has always been frustrating to me is most email packages seem designed primarily for servers. I don’t need nor want to deliver any mail locally, I just want a means to send outgoing email, and have local root, postmaster, etc. sent to my email account. I can choose to install a “satellite system”, but what if I don’t want to forward to an external SMTP server? I had been running sSmtp, but I found it to generate too many errors. I tried to switch to postfix, but got a considerable number of errors during the install on sid, and I don’t actually want to run an SMTP daemon process. I have finally settled on Exim, with a modified “satellite” configuration. This seems to be working relativeliy well. Is there anything else I should be aware of?
