Which is followed by the instructions on enabling it.
Sorry Bill, I misunderstood. I thought Sam was talking about the
configuration file generated by running 'configure'. *That* was what I
couldn't find a reference to in the INSTALL file (i.e. what option to pass
to ./configure to enable ESMTP). I was thrown by his comment because I
mentioned earlier in the thread that I had set up the esmtpd configuration
as instructed (and posted it) and also I understood that enabling
authentication for incoming SMTP was not what I wanted as that would mean
*all* connections needed authentication. For these reasons I didn't think
he was talking about the esmtpd configuration file, which is indeed
documented as you describe.
Anyway, as I said elsewhere, it works now, since I generated that
certificate. I see someone else on the list found a solution by building
via the RPM's, so perhaps there is a glitch in regular build process?
