I am a relative newbie, and am having a problem trying to send emails from my Linux machine. I am running Suse 8. I have broadband, and don't have an SMTP server from my broadband provider. I have a couple of POP accounts on my own web domain, and I want to use my linux machine as my SMTP server, and have installed postfix, which appears to be running ok.
When I try to send an email from one address on my web domain to another, the email sends from the client ok (have tried both Outlook Express on another networked machine, and KMail), and doesn't produce any error messages at the time, and nothing in the /var/log/mail logfile. However the emails never arrive in the POP accounts.
i use sendmail but i guess the basics are the same?
you just want to send email and not recieve it?
ok... well i think all you need to do is amend the postfix file to say who its gonna masquade? you'll need an IP added somewhere to state what ips it will listen on also. so that any returned mail will get back i guess.
i might be missing some huge parts here, its late.
