"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 sendmail.cf 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."
