I have detailed two problem I have been running into. I wondered if both
the problems might have been related with each other so thought it would
be better to describe the two problems in one thread. I get the below error
message when running the command :
service sendmail restart
Problem # 1 :
Starting sendmail: makemap: error opening type hash map access.db:
Permission denied make: *** [access.db] Error 73
Problem 2 : Relay Denied
I am able to send emails within network using sendmail (guess that's
because the localhost is relay properly), but I am unable to send emails
I tried to send an email from yahoo and I got the below error
Message from yahoo.com. Unable to deliver message to the following
<firstname.lastname@example.org>: 126.96.36.199 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 Relaying Denied Giving up on 188.8.131.52.
Note : I am able to telnet successfully to IMAP and POP, but not to
SMTP (says connection refused). But I believe as long as IMAP works
fine, I should be able to receive email.
I am a newbie to Linux and as well to this forum
