Setting up my ideal email system 4

Sending mail

I used to do something clever with sendmail, but then spamcop blocked my computer because it apparently wasn’t set up properly, so now I use my ISP’s smtp server like everyone else. When I need to tunnel in I simply create a tunnel from localhost’s port 25 to my isp’s smtp server’s port 25, and set localhost as my smtp server on the machine from which I am tunneling. It works fine, and there was really no need to use my own sendmail in the first place, it turns out.

Next time: how I made my own webmail server.
