I'm soooo behind.  B-)

I checked my install notes, and I didn't note performing any
configure steps.  I simply apt-get-ed the package (I'm running
Ubuntu 13.10 -- yes, I'm REALLY behind B-), and then did the same
for sendmail (which is not installed by default).  The latter
action may have switched things in mts.conf.

That worked!  Thanks!

Is "submission" a port name that is aliased to 587?

Yes, it did!

You're welcome!  Thank you (all) for all your help!
