Dave:

Actually, ALL of the improvements I would like (and then some) have been mentioned in many prior posts. I was most specifically referring to the fact that a user's home is directly off the /home directory rather than the /home/httpd/www.domain.tld-80 directory for which he's listed as the "webmaster". If you want the home to be different you need to issue a command line command to change it. Also, I've found that editing the /etc/postfix/virtual file with Pico to be MUCH easier than using the WebTool. Plus, the WebTool won't allow an address with a "_" in it. Many of my users have Yahoo and HotMail accounts with "_" in them, thus requiring the Pico editing method.

Dave, you should know me a bit better by now. When have I EVER failed to voice my preferences? I've been really swamped lately so you haven't heard much from me but that will change again soon. I've been spending most of my spare time learning BASH and PostFix.

As far as the "mail customization" I was working on... Well (egg on my face) as it turns out, my problems all stemmed from my own ignorance. Once I got straightened out by Ryan on a couple of issues, I re-setup that first server and EVERYTHING worked the way I expected it to AFTER I entered things the way IT expected them to be entered. Ah, the price of knowledge...

Personally, from most of what little I know about Linux thus far, I greatly prefer to do things from the command line. It must be the latent MS-DOS tendencies I still harbor. Sometime right after COMDEX I'm going to build a dual Athlon desktop system for daily use, learning and development... Hopefully, I'll be able to get EnGarde, RedHat, SuSE AND Corel running on it. I've also been playing around with some of the NetMax releases. I haven't yet decided on a release to settle on as a desktop to recommend for my clients. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

When is the new release coming out? I'm really anxious to get my hands on it. I also have several ISPs waiting for it as well. From the little things I've shown them so far they're wanting to possibly implement EnGarde into their systems.

BC.
