I am running a mediawiki site on Suse 10.3. I want it to be able to send e-mails, and for this it needs to use the php mail() command. What is the minimum configuration I would need to achieve this?
I do not have my own domain atm - I'm using NoIP.
I can use the command line mail
to send mail to users on the same box. If I try to send to an internet address, the mail becomes stuck in mailq, with the message "No route to host". This happens whether or not Port 25 is open in my router firewall.
I think I am missing a huge configuration step somewhere. I played around with the YAST Postfix configuration but became lost when it started asking for mail server names on incoming mail - I don't want to get incoming mail, so I got stuck.
I have spent hours looking for a simple straightforward guide on how to do this minimum setup - if anyone can point me to one I would be very appreciative.
PS - I have checked the following related post:
I get "Unknown Service" if I try to start sendmail. YAST seems to push for Postfix over Sendmail.
