- Subject: SmartList and exim
I got SmartList to work with exim, but I couldn't get it to build
with root privileges over procmail. The problems with
Administrator, understanding setuid, geteuid, and the install
scripts were too much for me.
I have exim piping the mail through a .forward file to a second
procmail binary owned by the user running SmartList. Getting the
exim permissions right has been difficult but it is satisfying to
have a real MTA on cygwin. I'm surprised there hasn't been more
reaction to the getting of exim up on cygwin.
I wonder if a more modern list software like Mailman might just
drop in here, instead of the fiddling with shell scripts this has
SmartList is OK, however, so I probably won't pursue that.
Unless the whole lot collapses on me again ;-)
