no it doesn't, i chose to select individual packages and i installed all mail and server things. i went through the package install again and saw that there is nothing named sendmail in the packages, there is only postfix.

you can't take a screenshot then restart the computer....when you restart, it clears out the ram.

in order to telnet to yourself at a specific port, use your ip address then a space then the port number. so, if i wanted to telnet to myself on port 25, i'd type this command in telnet:
open 65.191.81.65 25


oh, and why not take the screen, email it to yourself, restart and send it out? or.. why restart at all?

after the install process, it forces a reset on the computer.

look. Sendmail is NOT installed. it IS on the second cd. INSTALL IT!!!

if these programs don't actually need sendmail, then mandrake does officially prefer postfix as it's smtp server of choice, but if these things want sendmail then there's little you can do.

ok i've got all the things that sendmail depends on. when i try to install sendmail (rpm -i sendmail*.rpm) it says sendmail is conflicting with postfix so it doesn't install.

is there a way i can install sendmail somehow? FYI, i tried rpm -i --force sendmail*.rpm and that didn't work

you could just use postfix

you need to read the docs on how to set it up.

You should edit the /etc/postfix/main.cf file for the settings you need. The file is commented very well. You should be able to get it going in a couple of minutes.

Don't change a lot of stuff, just the obvious.
Most people have a problem because they change too much.

postfix start
