OK seems like you've proved it's your mailer and not the host you're
trying to relay through. Perhaps try something like pine or mutt and set
it up to use an smtp host if you're still not convinced.
I would get into even more confusion doing that :-)
Now it's a question of why nullmailer's having a bitch... is it something
locally it's complaining about? (files, permissions, disk space?
I think thats all OK. Disk space is fine. I can check permissions tomorrow.
run it with strace?)
I dont have strace on the machine. Im keeping it pretty clean of things
like that. But can put it on if needed. The prog isnt crashing though.
Can you relay through another host?
I dont have another that I can use to test.
maybe if you have
another mail server somewhere (or I could arrange for one to let you try -
provided it's you only and not a NAT'ed connection), can you relay through
the other server?
I'll see what other sluggers suggest Grant. Otherwise if Im stuck I'll
get back to you. Thanks.
