Yeahh, now I remember ... didn't make the connection then, I haven't
trusted it with real email so far. Anyway creating a mail relay out of
it shouldn't be that hard:
First remove everything pop3 related:
- the pop3block in dispatch
What's left is much easier to understand, I gues. Now it depends on what
you need it for:
1) if it's mostly for getting your mail away, you could change the
save-mail function to a) send a new email. (Or b) save it for later
2) If you want to understand more about smtp, the smtp-rule gives you an
overview on how an smtp connection works.
Mind you, I'm no smtp expert either, I just started with reading a short
overview, and then tweaked it until it seemed to work ;-)
If you tell me what road you want to head down, I might do it when I
have a little time over.
