Description Alexey Kuznetsov 2009-01-07 04:15:45 EST
I configured my notebook to send all everyday reports to my external e-mail address. All configures done by:
- adding /etc/alias root->myusername
- adding /home/myusername/.forward -> address@mail.com

after one weak / one month i got tons of undelivered email. that happens because sendmail try to send mails in wrong time, when i offline, and never do it when i online. Probably sendmail initiate connection on boot when i do not have any interfaces enabled, which ask sendmail to wait for one month before another delivery.
