Subject: [PATCH v2] git-send-email: die if sendmail.* config is set
Date: Sat, 18 Jul 2020 16:21:42 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200718202142.111015-1-sir@cmpwn.com> (raw)

I've seen several people mis-configure git send-email on their first
attempt because they set the sendmail.* config options - not
sendemail.*. This patch detects this mistake and bails out with a
friendly warning.
