Setting domain address


Hi,

I am running SuSE 9.1, with KDE 3.3.2. I have run into a problem where KMail will not send any messages because of the error: "5.0.0 EHLO requires domain address." I have tried setting a domain address using the "domainname" command, and this sets the name correctly. However, I still get the error. When I restart my computer, the domainname disappears though? (That's kind of a side problem I guess).

Can anyone point me in the proper direction?

Thanks!

Kev

Setting a local domainname isn't the problem. KMail needs to be told to send the domain for the mail with the HELO command.

Thank you for helping me make that connection. I had been wondering all along if it were a Kmail problem. I've tried about every option I know of to get KMail to send a specified domain, but to no avail. Any insights?

Thanks!

Kev

Unfortunately, I don't use Kmail myself, but I would check to make sure I had the latest version if I were you. Are you using your ISPs SMTP server?

Well, I kind of found a work-around for the problem. After using my ISP's SMTP server for a long time, I ran into this problem. I have been working on it for quite sometime. I ended up using Sendmail on my local machine to forward all my emails to my ISP. Apparently, when I leave Sendmail to communicate with my ISP's SMTP server, it does alright. KMail just wasn't communicating properly. So now, I just have KMail forward to Sendmail, which then passes it along to my ISP. Do you see any problems with this setup?

Thanks again for the help!

Kev

No, that's a fairly decent setup. Many people with LANs run a local SMTP proxy for their ISPs server.
