	Main Presentation:

	     Sendmail is a key program used to manage the flow of mail in
	     Unix-based networks.  As such, it is of interest to System
	     Administrators and other Unix managers who are responsible for
	     managing this vital function.

	     David P. Feldman, a Systems Architect with the Debt Markets
	     Group and Postmaster for Merrill Lynch, will present an overview
	     of sendmail at this meeting.  Mr. Feldman is responsible for
	     managing a complex network serving many thousands of users.

	     The following sendmail topics will be discussed:

		- Using the SMTP Protocol
		- Using the Sendmail Configuration File
		- Understanding and Using NIS and EMail Aliases
		- Enterprise-wide Considerations
		- Interfacing with SMTP gateways, including BANmail, cc:mail
		  and PROFS
		- Interfacing with the Internet
		- Security Considerations and How to Work with Firewalls

	     Deploying and managing sendmail is complex.
	     Don't miss this opportunity to learn from Dave's experience!

A few months ago, the publisher of New York Unix Magazine informed us that the
magazine was "going on hold."  (That's why you havn't seen an issue lately).

Ross Ziskind has volunteered to restart the newsletter and he has seen that
the first issue (this month's meeting announcement) has gone out.  The
announcement has already arriving around NYC... keep an eye out for yours
(assuming you are on our US Mail mailing list).

To keep the newsletter going, the two biggest problems to overcome are:

	a) Volunteers to see that it gets out
	b) Content material

If you have any ideas or can help contribute to our newsletter, please make
them known at our meetings and/or let us know by EMail.  If you know anyone
who has experience in sending out a newsletter, we can always use some good
advice.  Ross can be reached via email to editor@unigroup.org.
