Description Stefano Balocco 2011-03-19 19:48:01 UTC
dma is a small Mail Transport Agent (MTA), designed for home and office use. It accepts mails from locally installed Mail User Agents (MUA) and delivers the mails either locally or to a remote destination.  Remote delivery includes several features like TLS/SSL support and SMTP authentication.

dma is not intended as a replacement for real, big MTAs like sendmail(8) or postfix(1).  Consequently, dma does not listen on port 25 for incoming connections.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge dma
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "dma".

Expected Results:  
>>> Emerging (1 of 1) mail-mta/dma

an ebuild: https://github.com/slashbeast/foo-overlay/tree/master/mail-mta/dma

A link to git instead of attachments as I do poke around it so the content may change before anyone decide to include it into tree.

Has there been any progress in getting an ebuild into the tree? According to the repo upstream, the project seems to be active: https://github.com/corecode/dma
