I am having a problem with my exim SMTP server.I am on a single machine network and dont need any fancy things to work.I just want exim to send my mails out.
When i use pine and send a message, it says the message has been send but no one ever ecieves the message.I look at the logs and this is what they say:
2004-06-18 14:51:03 1BbOS7-0000jA-00 <= firstname.lastname@example.org U=rmanocha P=local-esmtp S=535 id=Pine.LNX.4.58.0406181450460.2796@prophecy
2004-06-18 14:54:13 1BbOS7-0000jA-00 ironman.mail.utexas.edu [188.8.131.52]: Connection timed out
The earlier messages have completely timed out and bounced back.
I have specified three domains in my exim config
rophecy(my machines name),localhost and manocha.ath.cx(my DNS name).
manocha.ath.cx does not have a incoming mail server running.
i removed the entry in inetd for exim and started exim on bootup.
I also have port 25 open so it is not a port issue.A nmap of localhost gives me this:
PORT STATE SERVICE
22/tcp open ssh
25/tcp open smtp
68/tcp open dhcpclient
80/tcp open http
111/tcp open rpcbind
443/tcp open https
10000/tcp open snet-sensor-mgmt
I dont know what i am doing wrong here.If u wish to see my exim.conf file or my exim log file,I can put it up.
Can someone please help me with this.this is really excrutiating.
