In the process of developing and testing my storefront, I had to write a unix 'mail' program for cygwin, so I could test locally the same way it will run at freeshell.org. Use it if you wish... but one major kludge is its creation of the 'From' address; it takes the username and appends 'com' to it. So if your username is 'Fred Flintstone' it will break as it tries to send From: Fred Flintstone@Fred Flintstone.com. I'll possibly fix that someday, but don't hold your breath because it works for me (jcomeau at jcomeau dot com).
