provides an alternative service for most mailing lists.c.f. bug 424647
About 4 hours ago, the mailer on this system (postfix) died. Postfix has been
having major file locking problems that I don't have time to resolve (possibly
due to it using a different file locking mechanism than Berkeley DB, which it
uses). The problem got really bad this morning when postfix died and refused
to start up again.
I think I've fixed everything. We're now using the "exim" mailer (seems to
be working well). We're upgraded to kernel 2.4.0-ac11 (nice stuff), and the
mailing lists should all be working. And I'll be able to add a few more new
mailing lists since "newaliases" works now. Whee. :)
Thanks to Jerry for the exim mailer package. I would have been (really) dead
without it :)
