The next Seattle SAGE meeting is tonight (Thursday January 10, 2002) at 7pm.

The UW Rosen/McWilliam Building facility is a secured building. So a
SAGE member will be at the Republican Street entrance until 7:15 P.M. to
open the door for meeting attendees. After that a phone number will be
posted on the door for the SAGE meeting specifically. There is an
"internal extensions only phone" at the Republican Street entrance to
allow you to call building extensions. The posted phone number will be
monitored until at least 7:45 P.M. However, please make every effort to
arrive by 7 P.M.

Directions can be found at:

Never used courier/exim/postfix/qmail/etc.; however, most unix
mail software supports AUTH/TLS through Cyrus SASL and OpenSSL,
so about two-thirds of the talk will be relevant to being with.

The first portion of the talk is dedicated to a general overview
of the protocols in question, which I intend to spend the most
time on.

The "howto" portion of the talk is intended for the regular
stream of visitors I get to my sendmail IRC channel asking
for help configuring their systems.
