Hello

 

I just got a copy of Bryan Costales "Bat Book" on 'sendmail'.

 

Trying to explore some of the procedures descibed, I'm running into probs
because I previously installed the reduced-function 'ssmtp' as a port,
following the guidance in #24.8 of the online FreeBSD Handbook. Now I can't
seem to uninstall it, and the man pages and online documentation are silent.

 

Probably I'm missing something or doing something stupid.

 

If I do a fresh install of a recent 'sendmail' version - say V8.12 - will
that automatically disable 'ssmtp'?

 

Many thanks for any wise words.

 

regards

Charles Brewster
