The good news is the journal stuff is working. The bad news is the email stuff is seriously not working. It turns out that 1) I can’t set up the shell account to have email to/from firstname.lastname@example.org through it, which is irritating, but nothing like as irritating as the fact that email@example.com email seems to still be going to eskimo.com, and the email I’m sending to/from my (argh) pop account just seems to be going in circles.
