View Full Version : Postfix - Can't send out an email

5th April 2007, 11:08 PM
Hello All,

I have a quick problem.

I have installed postfix on my FC6 server and I have configured it like below:

# Optional: send mail as user@domainname instead of user@hostname.
#myorigin = $mydomain

# Optional: specify NAT/proxy external address.
#proxy_interfaces =

# Don't relay mail from other hosts.
mynetworks_style = host
relay_domains =localhost.localdomain

All I need to do is send out an email using the command line.
I use the command mail

mail -s "WARNING: Shutting down" joe@joe.com

I checked the spooler error log's and nothing is even in there at all. They are completely blank.

Any and all help would be much appreciated!

mail uses sendmail to send its message. make sure sendmail is still installed on the box? (its gotten me before)
