email Connection refused


Hi,

I am trying to send e-mail from command line by using "mail" in fedora. It goes to e-mail server in the same network but it is refused by other outside this network with message: "..... Connection refused by name@yahoo.com ......

Any ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks.

What program are you using on the backend to send and receive mail and have you configured it for yahoo mail?

I probably don't know enough to help, but Klaatu talks about setting up a mailer in his March 19, 2010, podcast. You can find it here. Maybe that will help you get pointed in the right direction.
