"I published an article in the September issue of Linux Gazette (LG #57) titled Making a Simple Linux Network Including Windows 9x. I received questions regarding my encrypted Windows partition. People asked me questions like. "How did you do that?" So I'd like to answer, "how did I do that?" I would also like to describe my successful configuration of sendmail, which remained open in my previous article."

"The above-mentioned article was about how to configure simple network including Windows 9x, but I was at that time unsuccessful with configuration of sendmail. First, let me say that I was not interested to have a standard mail server--one server from which I would fetch mail. I was interested to configure sendmail to have a possibility to send mail from machine one to machine two, and from machine two to machine one. This is something not very usual; however, the information revealed here may also be useful for such a standard sendmail server configuration."

"I am using a term "sendmail configuration", by which I do not mean "configuration of file", but rather "making sendmail work". In other texts of Linux documentation files the term "sendmail configuration" is understood as manipulation of sendmail configuration files in /etc directory."

"The following article will briefly describe how I configured this and how I successfully shared an encrypted Windows partition with Linux."
