[svlug] Sendmail/Postfix Problem

	I'm forced to use my own Linux as a smtp server since the demon 
I got that works great to pop e-mail from a Hotmail server doesn't 
include a demon to send outgoing e-mail back through Hotmail. It's been 
no real problem but there is one or two problems which are probably 
awitch settings.

	I'm using a stock Red Hat version 8 workstation. My email client 
is pine, and I use fetchpop to get the email, run it through Procmail, 
to sort it and then read it.

	The first problem is simple. I send a email to a list server and 
I never see it, but others do. I will never see this message on the 
list. I think my Sendmail/Postfix is putting some word or character in 
the message so when I try to pop it to my computer it disappears. That 
is because it does. Anyone know how to fix this?

	The second has to do with AOL.COM. For some reason their spam 
filters think my messages are spam and destroy them. If you look at the 
whole message I send out it is a little odd. My messages are handled by 
bucket.dog, localhost, and others before it gets out to the Internet. 
This seems to confuse AOL. Does anyone know how to fix this?
