Re: Mail From SUN to Symbolics

When trying to send mail from a Berkeley UNIX host to a LispM, be sure
that sendmail is defined to use the "tcp" mailer and not the "ether"
mailer.  The "ether" mailer does not follow the SMTP standard because it
terminates lines with just a LF rather than CRLF -- it should be used
only for mail between hosts running Berkeley UNIX.

The "tcp" mailer should be found in /usr/src/usr.lib/sendmai/cf/tcpm.m4
If you don't have source, the important thing is the mailer definition
line (or whatever sendmail calls it) in your sendmail.cf file which
should look like this:

Mtcp,	P=[IPC], F=msDFMueXL, S=<ruleset#>, R=<ruleset#>, A=IPC, E=\r\n

The important bit in the above is E=\r\n which means to terminate lines
with CRLF.  

Of course you will also have to define a seperate "class" for LispM
hosts and in ruleset 0 you must detect a host in this class and dispatch
it to the "tcp" mailer.  What fun... thanks Berzerkly.
