Forum OpenACS Q&A: Sendmail Sucks

6: Sendmail Sucks (response to 1)
Posted by good bye on
Ok. I looked at my two servers, and realized the japanese server was running the default sendmail SMTP listener. No matter how many patches I applied to AOLserver or whatever uuencoding procedure I used, my mailer was still wrecking the japanese encoded subject. My own personal machine, running the qmail SMTP listener, worked fine. So, I relayed through my box running qmail, and everything worked fine....even without encoding the subject in the manner henry describes in his page on sending japanese email linked from Thus, the problem is sendmail, not AOLserver.

lessons learned:

  1. sendmail sucks
  2. suntory boss "HG" blend canned coffee causes less of a caffiene hangover than the standard blend
  3. bill by the hour, not by the project
