	well, i fibbed about napping, but have discovered the following:
	from my freebsd server, ethic, i can, as root, get mail out to my shell account here at magnesium.net.  
	so far, that's about it.

	I _did_ a pkgdb -F which seemed to correct much in that database.
	i have send mail to the test acct at freebsd.org.  i haven't seen anything.
	nutshell: it looks as tho i can send mail as root [from ethic].
	i will now try my desktop and see what happens.
