Want to use my linux box to send to send a mail and attach a file. Need help


Want to use my linux box to send a mail and attach a file. Need help

In my linux box this is what i have done so far

1. vi /etc/mail/sendmail.mc

Added define(`SMART_HOST',`10.11.11.16')

IP defined above is my mail server.

2. Started the sendmail service

/sbin/service sendmail start

3. Tried a test to my email by using

mutt -s "test email" test@abc.com

However i didnt get any test mail.


Guys i need your assistance.

Mike.

For SOHO users SMART_HOST usually points to their ISPs mail server. Ensure that's the case or ensure "10.11.11.16" is allowed to send email itself. Next check the mail servers /var/log/maillog for clues.
