Description G. Michael Carter 2008-10-28 11:19:48 EDT
This is a feature request.  (Couldn't find a place for it)

Most ISP providers in our area block port 25 traffic.  So any outbound traffic from sendmail is blocked.  To get around it you need to relay it through one of their servers (ie smtp1.sympatico.ca or smtp.rogers.com)

Currently I have a bash script for me and my family which does the setup on startup of a new computer.

What would be nice is a nice gui screen which will do simple and/or advanced setup for sendmail.    Simple that my mom, who is holding a bell.com card with username/password, could setup.   Also, features for profiles.  That way a laptop which is moving from location to location could be setup.

I know most "average users" would just setup their client, so this wouldn't be used by many people.  Just thought it would be something useful.

And before someone says "Why don't I write it and submit it"... I'm bound by a contract with the company I work for, which was signed when I started in 96.  So any code I write and submit to Fedora would be legally owned by that company.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Changing to F11 since still something I'd like to see there.
