Re: ssmtp problem

So, I installed esmtp, shut down the sendmail daemon, and created a file, /etc/esmtprc with the following contents:

hostname = localhost.localdomain:25
mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d %T"      

I did not enter a username, password or identity line, as I do not send myself mail as root, nor does root send me mail. All I want is for the system mail to be sent to root and for newaliases to route it to me.

Just as a test, I did send a mail as root to me and it worked (there was no name in the 'from' field, but that is because I didn't define an identity, as can be seen above). Do you think this configuration is all I need to get what I want, without any errors or loss of system mail?
