Send Mail?


I am running an Apache webserver on Mandrake 9.1 on a crappy old CPU.

I use dyndns.org to forward my IP to my server.

How do I set up Sendmail so it will work? Right now it does nothing. I do not run a mail server. Should I? I use my msn email as my server admin name. How do I set this up so it will email me my form data?


This is the error

Quote:

My local host is not a qualified name -set my hostname or my domain in etc/postfix/main.cf
Thanks for any help in advance


Cool Hand...

It seems like you're running postfix instead of sendmail. The postfix main.cf config file is usually really well documented on all Linux distros. I really think you should fire up your fav editor and take a look at /etc/postfix/main.cf. I think you will probably only have to enter the hostname to get this working. If you run into trouble I suggest the http://www.postfix.org/documentation.html page which contains lots of info on how to get postfix running the way you want it.
