That's right. Now I know it, but I have used an automated program that
collected just the first line the remote server output and logged that in
a file. That way I didn't have to browse the servers manually... the
method wasn't apparently perfect ;-))) Well, does anyone have any clue as
to what may cause the timeouts? It's certainly not a problem with the
network here nor with the delays between both ends - I have checked both
and they're ok. Also the timeouts don't appear when using (erp...)
sendmail... I don't know zmailer source well enough yet to spot the
problem - perhaps someone has had similar problems in the past and found
some cure to them?
