what is the best (and easy to configure!) sendmail alternative to send emails with openbsd under the Zaurus?
i've googlesearched about sendmail configuration and it doesn't seem to be easy at all!!! what i want is to use my yahoo pop3 smtp server (with authentication) for example over a dialup gsm networking.
would someone be kind to post a little howto ? wink.gif

EDITED: right now i'm compiling msmtp to see if it meets my requirements smile.gif

well, msmtp seems to do the job very well !


$ nano -w .msmtprc
account default
host smtp.your_provider.com
from your_email@your_provider.com
auth login
user your_name
password your password


$ chmod 600 .msmtprc

$ nano -w .muttrc
set sendmail="/usr/local/bin/msmtp"


and that's all!

I use pine on my Z for e-mail purposes. It's small, simple to setup, and works great with g-mail. (Yahoo sucks)

its not pop3 doing the sending, its submitting to a smtp server for fowarding to its destination or direct connecting to the recipents smtp server

pop3 and imap are a way to pull your email
smtp is how mail is fowraded between servers

for email with yahoo try fetchyahoo, its perl if i remeber corecttly and i used it to migrate mail from yahoo to my mail server (just thought someone might find that handy, yahoo does indeed suck)

for relaying mail I much prefer exim to sendmail as a daemon, the config file is very readable and it's easy to get up and running in a fairly secure manner.

for mail client, claws-mail is a nice gui one, otherwise mutt (or pine) for console.
