Yes. Eating all FDs and dying is Bad. Personally I think it's a linux
problem, but maybe zmailer should work around it.

(linux appears to let one process open all the files, thereby denying all
services. Bad.)

I don't think so. You need to use the same trick mea used with majordomo
on vger. Should be in the config examples somewhere.

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe zmailer" in
the body of a message to majordomo@nic.funet.fi
