  Thanks for the pointer!

  As you can see in my other response, I already have a usable
workaround for ssmtp (convert DOS-format input to UNIX-format), but exim
may come in handy at some time. I installed it and played a little with
it. Even without bothering to configure it, it 'automagically' worked,
but then stopped working with mail stuck in the mail queue. As I have
too litlle experience with sendmail (I only used it as a user, i.e.
"sendmail -t", not as an admin), it is not clear to me if I can only use
"exim -t <inputfile" or that I also have to run exim (with "-bd"?) as a
daemon. Anyway, that is for the future. For the moment I can use ssmtp
with UNIX-format input. But thanks again for your pointer!
