evolution and outlook express


hy

I am trying to send localy a mail from a linux box to windows box and vice versa without success!!!

My linux box is CENTOS and i am using it as a gateway, in fact i got two NIC's in CENTOS box:
192.168.1.2 WAN related to a modem: 192.168.1.1;
192.168.0.2 this is my LAN NIC, and many other pc's are in my LAN (192.168.0.0).

What i want to do is trying to send mail from one box to another using the outlook express for the windows PC's and Evolution for the Linux boxes.

I should say that i want to send mail locally inside my LAN (192.168.0.0).

At each time i've got this message within the outlook for example:
Impossible d'envoyer le message car l'un des destinataires a été refusé par le serveur. L'adresse de messagerie refusée était 'red@mail.intranet.ism'. Objet 'salutation', Compte : 'hanane', Serveur : 'mail.intranet.ism', Protocole : SMTP, Réponse du serveur : '550 5.7.1 <red@mail.intranet.ism>... Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed [192.168.0.9]', Port : 25, Sécurisé (SSL) : Non, Erreur de serveur : 550, Numéro d'erreur : 0x800CCC79

what should i do?

From the linux box it ask me for the imap password which i don't have??? since i did not set any password for imap!!


it's in frech i am sorry!!

For translating, have a look at http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr. For anyone else like me with almost no French, it's close to this:
Code:
Impossible to send the message because one of the recipients was refused by the server. The address of refused transport was 'red@mail.intranet.ism'. Object 'salutation', Account : 'hanane', Server : 'mail.intranet.ism', Protocol : SMTP, Server Response '550 5.7.1 <red@mail.intranet.ism>... Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed [192.168.0.9]', Port : 25, Secured (SSL) : Not, Server Error : 550, Error Number : 0x800CCC79
Are you using sendmail for SMTP? If so, are you allowing hosts on your network to relay mail? In /etc/mail/access (that's the usual location, yours may vary) you should have a line like:
Code:
192.168.0    RELAY
You can add that line and then re-build the database with:
Code:
makemap -v hash /etc/mail/access < /etc/mail/access

hermouche, are you aware that you need a type of software called an MTA (Message Transfer Agent) on each computer that you try to send e-mail to? You cannot just configure
your e-mail client (Outlook Express, or Evolution) with the IP address of another computer and have it deliver mail. You need to setup an MTA (such as Postfix, Qmail, Sendmail,
Exim, etc) to receive the e-mail. On a UNIX-like sytem (such as Linux) most e-mail clients automatically know where to check to pickup their e-mail, but on a Windows system
you would need to additionally configure a POP3 or IMAP4 server for the user to fetch their e-mail from (this can be done on Linux too).

Oh yes agree 100%.
I want a mail server who can take over mails from one PC to another PC (locally i mean in a private LAN), wether it uses linux or microsoft OS. This is the main idea.

Could you give me some directions to follow in orther to have it done?

I am using CENTOS as my OS, Sendmail is running, what should i do in sendmail or imap or smtp.
thanks

thanks for replying

I've done what you said and this is what i get when i try to send/receive mail:

The original message was received at Sun, 31 Dec 2006 09:38:29 +0100
from [192.168.0.9]

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<red@mail.intranet.ism>
(reason: 553 5.3.5 system config error)

----- Transcript of session follows -----
553 5.3.5 mail.intranet.ism. config error: mail loops back to me (MX problem?)
554 5.3.5 Local configuration error

It seems that named is not well configured?
