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 Netcraft.co.uk, Hulver.com:
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.
