[REBOL] Re: sendmail...

From: gjones05:mail:orion at: 15-Feb-2001 10:16

Hi, Chris, I am just pondering out loud and am not really answering your question, so ... First, at the risk of demonstrating my ignorance, I believe that sendmail runs as a daemon, meaning that it always runs. Some (many) hosting services do not allow a continuously running program. If I demonstrated my ignorance, and sendmail can be run as needed, then maybe a bash version of the rebol batch file generator will work. I believe Doug Vos programmed the script for starting a Windows batch file. I would imagine the same concept would work for bash (csh, tclsh or whatever). It's just a thought hardly worth the *paper* it was written on. Finally, what I suspect will be the solution you would need if you stick with the "hoster" that you have chosen, is to forward the mail to an alternative smtp server. Some (many) do not allow for the "from" domain name to be different than the accounts for which the smtp is configured (ie, avoids some spam sources). If not helpful, then toss this in the bit bin with the rest of my posts! :-) --Scott
