Okay, I've done that job, turned out to be fairly easy, once I'd worked
out what all the components needed!
The setup ended up being:
ISP -> Fetchmail -> procmail -> qpopper ---> user1
to use a non-port 25 mailer in fetchamil, just have a
MDA "/usr/bin/procmail -f %F"
then it all works!
If I left out the "-f %F" qpopper couldn't handle the mail, had a message
Unable to process From lines (envelope), change recognition modes
and all the help I found from google, mentioned nothing about "-f %F"
for that particular error!
Another thing, Does anyone have an Idea what rates I should charge?
Considering I'm an amatuer with a fair amount of SYS Admin skills and
linux troubleshooting, but having no qualifications
At the moment I charge $25 an hour, less, if it's something I've never
done before (like this mail stuff).
