Note to the patient readers who noticed that nothing has changed in this FAQ since 1996... Email systems have changed radically over the past few years, and I'm beginning the daunting task of bringing this FAQ into the new world. I'm planning a lot of changes: - Adding POP/IMAP discussions, and common implementations - Extensive coverage of anti-spam measures resources, and packages. - Updating recommendations to include things like the phase out of UUCP, predominance of POP/SMTP/MIME etc., S/Mime, PGP etc. - Other suggestions? I've started off the ball by mostly changes in the second and third parts: - updated sendmail - dropped IDA sendmail references. - dropped EASE references - begun the deprecation of obsolete solutions (UUCP, UUCP maps etc) - added exim. - added qmail. | - updated MMDF It would help a lot if anyone wanting to add a section on their favourite email topic (UNIX please!) could write it and send a copy to me. I'll also be dredging through my archives to find previous comments that haven't yet been added. Changes are marked with a preceding "|". You can skip to them by typing g^| in (most) newsreaders. Note: this FAQ has been formatted as a digest. Many newsreaders can skip to each of the major subsections by pressing ^G. Please direct comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org - note Reply-to: line - automatic if you reply to this article. Many changes made in the second and third parts.
