Allow back-out of all menus

Post by Daniel Beardsmore » 26 Jul 2016 17:33


One frustration with EFA is the ability to back yourself into a corner with the menu system, where you are absolutely required to change settings.

When perusing the settings to find where some setting might be, you will always hit these brick walls. Right now, I'm looking at an SSH session that's trapped in "Spam Delivery and Retention Settings". The text ends with:

[EFA] Do you want to ENABLE spam delivery? [y/N]: ^C^C^C^Z^Z^Z^Z^Z^Z^]^]

As I recall, the [y/N] part doesn't tell you how the server is configured, but rather, the factory defaults, so I've got to dig through each setting to figure out what it should actually be.

You can't bail out, so your only option is to kill the SSH session and start again. Most pages let you review the live settings and specify what to change, but they don't all, and it's exercise in frustration.

(I'm trying to see if there is some SPF setting I forgot about that was never enabled on this server, but I tend to avoid the menu system for this very reason.)
