Hey folks:

I just wrote to Adam, in response to his very first outgoing emails:
>We need to figure out how to configure View Mail so that it provides the 
>correct return address.  Its sending stuff out as ashapiro@shapiro, which 
>is not a valid email address outside of your own machine.  We need to set 
>it to read: shapiro@greens.org, which is where you get your email, so 
>folks will know where to write you back.  I'll take a look at that on my 
>next visit.

He is using Debian Woody, fetchmail to retrieve and I'd guess sendmail to 
access a smtp server for the outgoing.  This is the first linux email 
installation I have set up without benefit of all the graphical tools and 
clients that are normally available to me.  Any help in understanding how 
and where I should make this configuration change would be greatly 

On another matter, I just sent in a subscription request for Adam from my 
own email address.  I hope I got that right.  He'd really like to get in 
the loop on this list, but is still struggling with the outgoing 
emails.  Whoever minds those list requests:  Please cooperate with us on 
this end run around the usual process.  Feel free to call Adam at 
404-874-3005 to confirm if necessary.  He's now regularly reading, wanting 
more, and learning to respond.  Last night's on-phone tutorial was about 
filing his email in folders and deleting materials from his mbox.  On my 
next visit, I hope to set him up with bbdb, as well, to help him with an 
address book.
