GNU Mailutils is a collection of utilities for handling electronic
mail. It includes lots of programs necessary for dealing with
e-mail messages. One of them is
mail.remote, which is
designed as a drop-in replacement for
sendmail to forward
all mail directly to an SMTP gateway. Its interface is
sendmail which makes the program
especially useful as an interface between
anubis. The package can be downloaded from
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mailutils or any of the mirrors
(See http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html for a complete
list of these. Please, select the mirror closest too you). The
complete information about the package is available from its
home page at http://www.gnu.org/software/mailutils/
mail.remote, first download and install GNU mailutils
(as usual the package is shipped with files ‘README’ and
‘INSTALL’ which provide the necessary guidelines). Then
add to your ‘.muttrc’ file the following line:
set sendmail="mail.remote smtp://hostname[:port]"
where mail.remote stands for the full file name of
mail.remote utility, hostname and optional
port specify the host name (or IP address) of the machine
anubis and the port it listens on. Notice, that
default port value for
mail.remote is 25, which means
that in most cases you will have to specify it explicitely.
For example, suppose you run
anubis on machine
‘anubis.domain.org’ and that it listens on port 24.
Let's also assume you have installed mailutils in the default
location, so that full file name of
‘/usr/local/libexec/mail.remote’. Then, your ‘.muttrc’
set sendmail="/usr/local/libexec/mail.remote \ smtp://anubis.domain.org:24"
(the line being split for readability).
