Editor's note: At Jacek's request, the instructions from Gilles' message were removed from this article. Testers are advised to use the enable/disable scripts, since they are simpler and more complete.Here is Gilles' message:
Jacek Masiulaniec (jacekm@) posted a important follow-up giving instructions to enable OpenSMTPd in -current, and here it is:Hi misc@, As some of you may have noticed, smtpd has been enabled in the build and we encourage you guys to start testing it and report bugs you run into. What would be great is if you could replace your sendmail with smtpd on your laptop/desktop and started using it as a backend for your mua; or if you could set it up on some test box where you receive mail (with a secondary MX) as a destination MX. PLEASE do not run this in production, it is NOT ready. Really, don't do it, you will be unhappy and I will point my finger at you and laugh. Really ... don't. (...) Please, do not spam the list with reports of success or failure, instead you can send them to: email@example.com Thanks ! Gilles
Now, it is up to you!We came up with simplified instructions. Fetch these scripts: http://www.poolp.org/~jacekm/smtpd-enable http://www.poolp.org/~jacekm/smtpd-disable Then, run the following on a recent snap after cvs up: sudo smtpd-enable To deactivate: sudo smtpd-disable
