[REBOL] [ALLY] Email and Proxies Re:(2)

From: hopeless:eircom at: 31-Aug-2000 18:45

I'm only a newbie, but according to the REBOL official guide you can selectively disable proxies for each protocol by doing /system/schemes/smtp/proxy/host: false /system/schemes/smtp/proxy/port-id: false /system/schemes/smtp/proxy/type: false This worked for me as I had the same problem (I think) Jamie
