Just a BTW, can a person just reply via email??
I found my problem. It does take pump a while (no longer then other systems here, I figure it is a function of our DHCP server), but I removed the DHCP and just used static ip and found it was the sendmail startup that was really taking so long. Well I disabled that and it comes right up. I will make two schemes to use between my site and other sites. My company wants development to continue even if we travel. Should have included the log, next time.
Thanks much for your reply..
