where is dbmail?

[Binary packages]

Most major distros already have packages for dbmail. Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora en Gentoo are known to do so. So check your package manager.

From the console:

thufir@dur:~$ aptitude search dbmail

Is there a better way to find dbmail?

Hmm, I do see that it's available for Hardy, but not for oneiric which I see. Has it been replaced? Is there an alternate?

Ok, clicked on the link and see:

However, I don't think that I can install it, I'm getting a message:

Not found.  
There isn't a sofware package called "dbmail" in your current software sources.

It looks like dbmail was Removed from this repository. So you can download it from Here. Download the latest, and install it. For help in installing it This will help.

I don't think that link works precisely because dbmail isn't in my current software sources. I need to add a repository, perhaps? Note that it's on but not for 11.10. – Thufir Aug 14 '12 at 8:26
Thanks, I just wanted to be sure. I try to use apt where possible. – Thufir Aug 14 '12 at 8:39
