Ok, I haven't gotten the linux version working yet, but I love the idea of these projects.

Especially Portaris - http://www.portaris.org/wiki/Main_Page - although I'd get far more excited about this if I could get a kernel that supported my sata card.

Can you tell what I have to do (what programs I have to install) so that I can send emails from a Netsoc email account, pretty please? Webmail fails me.

Yes... it's a very simple chant "Open BSD sucks" Repeat it.

It's a problem on our end. We're attempting to fix this by moving the mail process to something like Utopia. This means we'll be able to run a STABLE version of Dovecot (rather than a very broken and buggy one) on Solaris. Therefore, it won't break like it's been doing.

In other words, it's a problem with out IMAP server. BAD problem.

Ahhh. And there I thought it I was doing something wrong. So, just how tempting is it to wipe everything and just start again?

Gentoo uses source code for packages, but god help you if you're not running x86. x86_64 seems to be too much for lots of things as well. I learned this when trying to install x86_64 on my amd64 desktop. 64bit ubuntu, now that just works! I was able to install wine and run win32 binaries on this OS seemlessly. None of this Gentoo shite. Gentoo is wasting one of the main advantages of a source based distro.

I'll give OpenBSD one thing, it's source based and all the ports work for all 11 architectures they support in my experience.
