Specific ISP Setup Info

The RW4M Initial Setup Wizard has been successfully tested at the ISPs listed below. The ISP specific information that RW4M requires is also listed, allowing you to use the RW4M Initial Setup Wizard. If your ISP isn't listed here it simply means we don't have information on it.

If you would like to add information for another ISP or update any information below, please send email to isp@rw4m.com. Please use that link as it will put the words "ISP Info" in the Subject line. If the Subject line doesn't contain ISP Info your message will not be read, more details are here.

Eskimo.com
The following information should be entered in the RW4M settings dialog: You need a .forward file, it should read:
"|procmail_wrapper -f- #username"
Include the quote marks, replace username with your username. The FTP host is ftp.eskimo.com. Visit www.Eskimo.com.
Pair.com
The following information should be entered in the RW4M settings dialog: You need a .qmail file, it should read:
|preline /usr/local/bin/procmail
(That is also the suggested .qmail in the RW4M settings dialog.) The FTP host is given in a welcome email sent when you open an account at Pair. It will vary depending which server you are assigned. It will be similar to server.pair.com; the server will vary. That will get procmail filtering mail for your pair.com address. If you'd like to setup filtering for your custom domain hosted at Pair, click here for more information. Visit http://www.pair.com/.
Panix.com

Since Panix changed to using SquirrelMail, an extra step is required at the Panix web site for the RW4M Initial Setup Wizard to work. Before using the Initial Setup Wizard, log into the Panix webmail page at https://mail.panix.com. Click on Options, then Mail Forwarding Options. Enter the following (on one line):
|exec /usr/local/bin/procmail||exit 75
That is not enclosed in quotes. Hit the Submit button on that page.

In the RW4M settings dialog, select the option that reads: I do not need a .forward or .qmail file. The FTP host is ftp.panix.com.

Alternatively, if you are comfortable using the shell, Panix has an install script, see their procmail help page. Visit www.Panix.com.

Reverse.net
The following information should be entered in the RW4M settings dialog: You need a .forward file, the following format works:
"|IFS=' '&&p=/usr/local/bin/procmail&&test -f $p&&exec $p -f-||exit 75#username"
(That is also the first suggested .forward in the RW4M settings dialog.) Include the quote marks, replace username with your username. The FTP host is ftp.reverse.net. Visit www.Reverse.net.
