Sigh... even a dry
smile isn't caught these days... oh well...
I mean, um, what are you talking about complex, it's as clear
as M4 macro language! Er.... um....
Ah, ok! M4! Yes, clear as mud, yes, LOL!
But if you are
using fetchmail/procmail for incoming email there is no
need for either.
Depends on your need. If you use both maildir and mbox, using a standard
delivery system might be a good idea. I'm thinking an MTA was configured on
his old system (suse used to be good about those things), but now I bet
it's broken due to recent system startup changes... If that's the case,
maybe finding what was there before, and putting it back might be the
shortest route to solving the problem...
Nay, the MTA is not broken on systemd systems. It works out of the box,
as always. Maybe, just maybe, you have to just run YaST mail module just
once, in simple mode, accepting defaults (and not configuring fetchmail
in there). But this has been the same for decades.
Instead of beating around the bush, lets have a good look at logs, ok? :-)
