"One slowly grinds against the insides of your printer, the other is much nicer to it."

comment Is using generic toner detrimental to laser printers?
Hi. I'm curious if you feel there is any substance in this comment: tomshardware.com/forum/…. Specifically, the poster writes: "I looked into this a week ago and from what I can see the big deal with toner is 1. how it's made - either it's been milled (crushed from big blocks using big rollers) or grown chemically. Milled toner has lots of sharp edges on the toner as the crushing rollers tend to leave sharp edges, where chemically made toner tends to be like little smooth surface spheres."

comment Where does evince store its per-document state (position, etc)?
These seem to be binary files. Any way of figuring out what the settings actually are?

Typo fix. Remove redundant words. Add some additional wording for clarity.

comment How to find out what port is Exim 4 using for SMTP?
Well, when I say they go through, they do some of the time. The authentication intermittently fails, for no apparent reason.

I've been testing using disposable email addresses, and these go through. These aren't local email domains by any definition.

comment How to find out what port is Exim 4 using for SMTP?
It seems that my setup is basically Ok, because the messages get accepted at least some of the time. However, the messages are also getting rejected some of the time, sometimes in the same delivery attempt. In any case, I'd like to know how to determine what port Exim is using to attempt to deliver these messages via SMTP.

I'm trying to pass my messages on to a smarthost, which does provide TLS. As far as the exim -bt command goes, I get the same result as already posted, with any email address I use. It appears emails are being both being accepted, and not being accepted, in a single queue run, so there may be something funky going on with the smarthost.

For the former, I get exim -bt user@domain R: smarthost for user@domain user@domain router = smarthost, transport = remote_smtp_smarthost host email32.luxsci.com [64.39.7.160] For the latter, I get lsof -i -P | grep exim exim4 25829 Debian-exim 3u IPv4 784099 0t0 TCP orwell:25 (LISTEN). Forgive my ignorance, but does that mean the connection is happening on port 25? I thought the port referred to that on the remote machine, though.

Giles, they wouldn't let you run Linux in a virtual machine?
