Sendmail


I have just setup sendmail on a redhat9 server. I can use webmin to send and recive emails. So I know sendmail is working right. However, SquirrelMail version 1.2.11 gives me the error: There was an error contacting the mail server.
Contact your administrator for help.

Can anyone tell me what is going on? or if there is a error file I can past here? Also, Outlook can connect to the server, but when you enter your password, it says "Server caused disconnection". Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks Randy

I've had better luck changing the settings for SquirrelMail to use smtp instead of sendmail to send mail.

I believe in the code block below from your config file; you will want to change the highlighted portion I made to have useSendmail = false instead of true

Code:
$imapServerAddress = 'localhost';
$imapPort = 143;
$useSendmail = true;
$smtpServerAddress = 'mail.oasisone.org';
$smtpPort = 25;
$sendmail_path = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';
$use_authenticated_smtp = false;
$pop_before_smtp = false;
$imap_server_type = 'uw';
$invert_time = false;
$optional_delimiter = 'detect';
Everything else from what I can tell looks ok.

You should be able to run the config script to configure the settings though, makes it a little easier to change, etc.
