Thank you to all those who offered suggestions on this subject.
I have got permission from the local admin to use their SMTP server when not
When at home I can either use the ISP's server or set up my own.
So all is now well.
Now I just gotta figure out Mutt... looks good though.
Hey long time no see.. great to see all the development going on and the
excellent wlug wiki web pages! Easy to navigate ones way around..
I would like to get a recent copy of Red Hat or Mandrake off someone to set
up at home and work if poss.. would be cool..
Also.. does anybody know or worked with a distro called RTLinux... for real
time programming stuff. - possibilities for where I work :)
It does not appear to. But we can't expect too much for version 1.0.x
Does evolution not automagically d/l keys on demand? I know I've got
mutt set up to (which puts an annoying pause in while it d/l's it when I
get a message from someone new)

Hmm, I don't see a button for this in Hotmail. ;-)
BTW, does anyone know of free e-mail accounts that are not WWW browser
based? Though it would be good to have in addition to POP3 et al.
Join the worlds largest e-mail service with MSN Hotmail.
Hmm, perhaps I should clarify this.
Could still boot original install of Debian.
cp /etc/* /mnt/hdb1/etc/ (with recursion option on -r or -R ...I forget)
^^^^win98 install with spare space.
Re-install - everything on ext2 partitions.
cp -f /mnt/hdb1/etc/* /etc/
I have been thinking since my initial post. Another re-install will be the
least troublesome way to remedy this. I was hoping to fix it the tricky way
but that doesn't seem to have served well so far. :-)
Oh well, a lesson learned.
Fortunately I found a utility (now where did I put that...) to read ext2
partitions from windows so all that apt-get over modem is not wasted.

I imported your key as you posted it on the Wiki and it doesn't seem to
work. Or you're using a different key to sign you message to the list.

I used to use my gpg key a lot, but had problems with OE not being able
to read my emails, which sucks, since one of the major reasons I wanted
it was to email votes for various projects I'm associated and the person
that collated the ballots used OE. Uh.

mutt supports it really well too, and supports it according to the RFC,
unfortunately, OE doesn't, and doesn't show the email at all :(
Recently however mutt has added an option to do it stupidly that OE can
(hopefully) read. This is one of my first test emails with it :)

Shouldn't be a problem for this list, right? <runs, grinning and

Especially when people exploit a bug in Outlook's mime routines to hide
their messages for anyone who doesn't want to have to run them through "View
Source"! I've disabled the priority column in my message view because of
you, too :)
Personally, in the most part, I trust that you're really you, and have
always considered PGP unnecessary for day to day use. I'd like an e-mail
client to hide PGP blocks and perhaps just tell me if a message is signed or
I'm interested in getting some more signatures on my GPG keys
anyone interested in signing/ having me/others sign theirs, bring your
passport and GPG/PGP fingerprint with you to WLUG meeting on monday
I'm going to attempt to write up some notes on the Wiki about how to
sign keys etc

You should be able to, although it might be a good idea to check out a Linux
hardware compatability list (url, anyone?). Otherwise it could be that the
X server is bombing out, in which case it should be leaving error messages
