3000 customers who use sendmail to transport
messages to and from their MPE systems can now download version
8.13.1 from the HP Response Center. The software, which HP includes
in its Fundamental Operating System releases of MPE/iX, is now more

The latest version includes installation scripts
which set up sendmail with the correct permissions. Folks, this
is monumental! said systems manager Mark Landin over the 3000-L
mailing list. The latest sendmail release for HP-UX (supplied
by HP, rather than having to compile it yourself) is 8.11.1. HP-UX is
actually behind MPE/iX in networking software.

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, explained that the Unix
environment for the HP 9000s HP must maintain compatibility with
older HP mail software. HP-UX has had to carry the burden of
OpenMail and OpenDesk integration all along, he said.
