outgoing messages met with error in maillog: connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
im incredibly new to the linux world and am setting up first web/email server. using sendmail to be main email server. I have gotten incoming messages to go to the correct user's mailbox, however outgoing meets the following from maillog:
Apr 22 09:51:03 localhost sendmail: m3MGp3JG021824: to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>,<email@example.com>,<firstname.lastname@example.org>, ctladdr=<email@example.com> (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=180336, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
now i don't know enough to be able to decipher the log completely... any help is appreciated
what i have done:
changed permissions on clientmqueue to be more lenient, to no avail.
trying to get sendmail operational with plans for dovecot as pop3.
