If I receive list mail on the hylton@conacher address, I cannot reply to it from the conacher address bucause my ISP will not route the mail as they autheniticate the sender ie the sender hylton@conacher is not the email address of the connected member on their network and they therefore drop the mail into the ether.

Is there a way I can send email to the list that is identified by the ISP as being from the correct paying account and delivered to the SuSE listserver as being from another email address, in this case a suscribed address. Perhaps something like the Cc address(SLE <suse-linux-e-hylton=conacher.co.za@xxxxxxxx>)?

Your assistance MUCH appreciated.
Thank you both to Patrick and Carlos whose reply I received twice as I had to subscribe my ISP email address. I gotta remember to unsub one of them soon :)

I have a GMail account but currently do not use it to even 1% of its potential as I have to have an email account at a local ISP so that I have to use so that I can connect to the internet. I have my ISP's SMTP server as th relevant entry.

I have so far managed to glean from my ISP that they authenticate all outgoing email to check that the sender is the person connected/allowed to connect to their network.

Patrick got me thinking though...Perhaps I could insert the GMail SMTP server entry in my local client, correctly identified by Carlos as Mozilla 1.7.2, as opposed to my ISP SMTP server? Could I use the GMail SMTP server without logging onto GMail?
I have just checked with my ISP though and they say that my SMTP server entry must be their one, not that I believe them though.

So the mail client setup here could be:
- 3 Inboxes, each with their own email address
- The SMTP entry of GMail
- A dialup connection using one of the email addresses to authenticate
myself to the ISP.

When I send email from any one of the three email addresses I have, it will all be delivered regardless of the sending email address?

An idea? comments?
