uucpssh.org: UUCP e-mail for Linux fans

When translating this file I noted a few errors... the Exim init.d script is not exit but exim instead (twice wrong). And the /etc/uucp/ config file call should have a link to uucpssh.org and not uucpss.org.

I do not understand this section:
Setting it up, SSH part
We must now generate a DSA key for ssh and upload it to the uucpssh.org admin page. How to do this is also described on the admin page. I just repeat it here.
- Become uucp user (su - uucp)
- Execute ssh-keygen -t dsa
- Do not give any password.
- upload the content of ~uucp/.ssh/id_dsa.pub to your uucpssh.org admin page
can you please explain it in a more detail??

Konfiguration zu aktivieren (/etc/init.d/exit restart).

I wrote uucomp back in 1993 to deal with high LD phone bills to retrieve my
personal email. It uses gzip, and typically achieves 75% or better
compression for email messages. It is also configurable to allow for
download of just email addressed to use (via grades), as opposed to
everything in your mailbox.
It works well over SSH. I have recently updated uucomp to rewrite UUCP bang
path addresses into more modern Internet addresses. It works over any
transport that supports UUCP - smail, sendmail, qmail, etc. It sits on top
of UUCP and requires no modification to UUCP itself - a minor modification
to the Permissions file, and wrapping uucico is all that is needed. It
currently works with Taylor UUCP, but has worked in the past with HDB UUCP,
so it would be easy to reconfigure it if needed.
It can be freely downloaded from http://intuitives.mine.nu/uucomp/uucomp.tgz
Due to the increased amount of web spam we have deciced to
removed the talkback posting possibility. You can read old talkbacks
but you can no longer post new ones.
Please contact webmaster(at)linuxfocus.org if you have any questions with regards to this talkback
