comment Is it possible to have an outgoing SMTP server when port 25 is blocked?
@katriel,cpugeniusmv: Note the OP's mention "outgoing-only mail server" (Yes, I know that katriel is the OP). In the context of the question, port 587 is the expected port. Katriel: MUA is your mail program, such as Thunderbird.

I know that 'thank you' is discouraged in SE, but Gilles you deserve a huge 'Thank you' for this terrific post.

comment Completion of words on the screen as in VIM (Bash or Tmux)
Bash completion and Git completion work (as I mention in the OP). The change that I would like to perform is to have it complete on the first Tab press the last legal value shown on the screen. This is how VIM Omnicompletion works.

Yes, funny is not the right word, but that is my way of grieving! I will ask the new question as I am also interested. Thank you Timo!

comment Short read while trying to open partition
Thank you. I was able to copy the disk with ddrescue and recover most of the files with e2fsck. The funny thing is that most of the unrecovered files were the newest files, for which I did not have a backup. I wonder if that is intrinsic to ext4.

comment How to overwrite target files with mv?
You should use cp -a instead of cp -r in order to preserve the file attributes (timestamp, permissions, etc.).
