Subject: [ALLY] Email and Proxies
I was trying to show off Rebol and ran into either a bug or my own stupidity.
I was trying to send a simple email (one liner) to show some people
how powerful Rebol is. It failed.
After about an hour I found out why.
I recently changed my 'user.r' to use generic (Cern) proxy. We are behind a
Netscape Proxy server. This proxy server does not allow mail out. Mail is
handled by another machine. Most mail clients do not talk to the proxy
server at all. The reason why I say this is that I changed my 'set-net'
to go to the socks server and all was well. Works like the Champ that
it is. Something tells me you need a 'proxy/noproxy' setting in SMTP.
Or, it really is some kind of bug.
