Because MANGO is making every effort to appear like an Internet system I
get used to not using correct FidoNet terminology. Yes, I do mean our
points. They communicate with MANGO using FidoNet protocols, and MANGO
uses UUCP to transfer their mail to the next system.

In fact it has quite a few other Fido specific rules which I didn't want
to complicate the issue with by mentioning. We don't use a mailertable,
and have just edited sendmail.cf directly.

Well -- I don't have the problem! It was Phillip Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
who was getting a sendmail error saying:
DSN: Can't create output: Error 0
He needs some help in configuring his sendmail.cf file to allow him to
send mail to his uplink.
