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: - pop3 - pop3dialog - recieve - 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 sending.) 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. Kind regards, Ingo
