via telnet localhost 25:
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
db_connect: failed to connect to database: Error: Access denied for user:
'admin at localhost' (Using password: YES)
220 NS1.4U2.PL ESMTP

Strange, because I can send emails from bash using mail command. I can send
email with php scripts as well (using mail() function). php.ini file has
empty settings for SMTP, so it uses default system settings...
