This is my mailer by choice. I love it.

There is one problem - most pre-compiled TCL/TK packages have the security option compiled in. The following script .xserverrc.secure which came with SuSE solves this.



#!/bin/sh

#
# move this file to ~/.xserverrc, if you don't want to allow everybody to
# get access to your X-Server
#
if [ -x /usr/bin/keygen ]; then
    if [ ! -x /usr/bin/hostname -a ! -x /bin/hostname \
         -a ! -x /usr/bsd/hostname ];
    then
        echo "startx: can't get my hostname - exiting"
        exit 1
    else
        host=`hostname`
    fi

    xauth add $host:0 . `/usr/bin/keygen`
    sleep 2
    xauth add $host/"unix":0 . `/usr/bin/keygen`
    exec X :0 -auth .Xauthority $*
else
    exec X :0 $*
fi
