Print Story Husi Mail Goes to Bulk Folder p.3
I prefer DC's Warlord personally.

So glancing at Steven's TCP/IP Illustrated Volume I Chapter 28: SMTP I realize that I am unable to use the -v command for mail to show me the execution sequence of mail delivery.

In Steven's book, and when I used to use the mail/mailx command years ago, the -v command ("verbose") would spill out lots of grody details. Although I seem to recall it being under either FreeBSD or NeXTstep or both. Not GNU/Linux.

I read the man page for the Linux/GNU implementation of mail (Ubuntu) and it supports the -v option, yet all it does is tell me that it will mail me a report of the message status. Not what I want. Very frustrating.


According to,
is running Linux on a colo box in Charlotte, N.C. in the United States of America. Prior to that it was in San Diego, California, United States of America. Funny, eh? I guess British colocation services aren't up to snuff? Or am I misreading this failure to eat ones own dog food too liberally? This does not let me know what hulver's mta is, but the linux MTA's are typically sendmail, exim, qmail, and postfix. Sendmail seems to be on the decline, and postfix and exim seem to be more defaultish on some distros. I think domain keys are supported on most/all(?) of the GNU/Linux MTAs, but it is entirely possible that they are more hassle than they are worth. I have no idea.

My quest to understand email continues, HuSians.

To be continued...

You will find the MTA in short order.

I recommend always assuming 7th normal form where items in a text column are not allowed to rhyme.

Yahoo mail uses its users as a decision layer in their spam filtering system. All it means is that someone in your Yahoo-internal mail server block has, at one time or another, marked a message from either or the IP range owned by the upstream provider as spam. That's all it is.

Now piss off.

I didn't know that. Very interesting. by husiacct (4.00 / 1) #7 Sun Sep 23, 2007 at 03:04:09 PM EST

You can build the most elegant fountain in the world, but eventually a winged rat will be using it as a drinking bowl.

yahoo mail is trying to tell you something... husi is boring.

Power up your flaming yo-yos already! --StackyMcRacky

Not at all. by husiacct (4.00 / 1) #8 Sun Sep 23, 2007 at 03:05:57 PM EST
I think it's trying to impose it's domain-keys fascism on the internets in violation of basic American USians conceptions of consensual participatory democratizations!

I think that HuSi is terribly, terribly interesting, Ana.

The 'boring' rep is designed to obfuscate the truth.

This is all an elaborate hazing designed to stabilize membership in your 'in-group' culture here, neh?

Total rip-off of Pellucidar. Do you have any original likes?

Is it unoriginal if I do not know or like by husiacct (4.00 / 1) #9 Sun Sep 23, 2007 at 03:09:01 PM EST
Burroughs? Oddly, I used to confuse Edgar Rice and William S. and found it strange when people spoke of the 'perverted and strange' Burroughs and I'd think.... "Tarzan... perverse & strange...?"

I've read many WSB but not any ERB.

Besides, originality is so pre-post-modern, neh? I am all into simulation and replication.

In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
butane in my veins so i'm out to cut the junkie
with the plastic eyeballs
spray paint the vegetables
dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
kill the headlights and put it in neutral
stock car flamin' with a loser and the cruise control
baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
got a couple of couches sleep on the love seat
someone keeps sayin' I'm insane to complain about
a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
don't believe everything that you breathe
you get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
so shave your face with some mace in the dark
savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park
(yo cut it)
Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(double-barrel buckshot)
Soy un perdedor i'm a loser baby,so why don't you kill me?
Forces of evil in a bozo nightmare
banned all the music with a phony gas chamber
'cuz one's got a weasel and the other's got a flag
one's got on the pole shove the other in a bag
with the rerun shows and the cocaine nose job
the daytime crap with the folksinger slop
he hung himself with a guitar string
slap the turkey neck and it's hangin' on a pigeon wing
you can't write if you can't relate
trade the cash for the beef for the body for the hate
and my time is a piece of wax
fallin' on a termite who's chokin' on the splinters
Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(get crazy with the cheeze whiz)
Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(drive-by body pierce)
(yo bring it on down)
(I'm a driver I'm a winner things are gonna change I can feel it)
Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(I can't believe you)
Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(Sprechen sie Deutches, baby)
Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(Know what I'm sayin'?)
