VoidMain, Ur right, the system is not connected to the net when I send the mails. So, let's forget about the DNS stuff for now. The problem seems to be that the mails after leaving Evolution do NOT go to the /var/spool/mqueue folder but they all go to the folder /var/spool/clientmqueue That is why m...

WOW! Thats a lot of stuff I wasn't aware of VoidMain...Guess these Official RedHat are totally useless..Coming back to the point, from what I understood so far, (pls correct me if I'm wrong) 1) The consolehelper is used to authenticate root users via the GUI 2) SU is used to authenticate root users ...
