Sendmail Enabler 1.1

Category : Technology/smenabler11.txt

I'm done. Finished testing it. This is going to make it even more useful. There's a new Options button which brings up the following dialog :

The main purpose is to allow the user to enable "Restricted SMTP Relay", which means that the server will now only relay mail for users who are on the local area network. That should stop the spammers from exploiting your mail server. But, what if you're at a client's site and want to still send mail out through your mail server? Just enter the client's domain name into the Relay-Domains field, restart Sendmail, and it will allow you to send it through.

Even without using the Restricted SMTP option, you can still make use of the other fields to create blacklists (by entering the e-mail address of known spammers into the Access field) or user groups (by using the Aliases field).

There's a tiger (a Jaguar, maybe a Panther) hiding inside your Mac. You should let it rip.

Only need to update the web pages and prepare the download files. Should be done by tomorrow night. Also I would love to give the app a nice icon. Contributions are most welcome...
