    After a clean install and going thru all the steps again, including the update to part 3, I get the following message when trying to send mail to local and or outside email address as suggested,

    [G4-Home:~] laurence% mail laurence
    Subject: Test From Terminal
    Did this work
    .
    EOT
    [G4-Home:~] laurence% No local mailer defined
    QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set

    Any suggestions?

      Exact the same problem I got on Jaguar now.

      The long article Chris recommended in "Configuring Sendmail for 10.2.x!" did not help me on this topic. So how can we get our reports mailed again?

    You miss the point! Some of us have fetchmail picking up mail from the ISP's POP3 server, passing it to sendmail which delivers the mail to each person with an account on the box. UNIX mail accounts are a must to be able to read that mail!!

      Someone on the macosxhints.com forums suggested using ipopd as a local pop3 server and picking up mail by pop3 from localhost. That works like a charm!!

      Do a search in the forums to find info about a pre-compiled version of ipop3d. caveat emptor: a precompiled binary could be doing absolutely anything!! For all I know, this is currently using my machine to hack the FBI or something... Still, I decided to trust it.
