Hi,

If you are using sendmail, you should obtain a (or make your own) configuration file
used for situations where all mail is sent through one 'smart' relay. This config is
ready-made available, so you probably don't want to write your own. Just say the wingate
machine is your 'smart' mailhub and you're set. In Netscape it's different, you can configure the name (or IP) of the SMTP server. Netscape conects to that host directly, so
the mail never even reaches sendmail on your local machine.

Alex.

You should use Winproxy in stead of Wingate. Much better.
You can get it at http://www.winproxy.net
