I cannot send mail using Outlook and sendmail server?


Hi,
I try to configure mail server under Linux ( Sendmail ). I use Redhat 8.0 (include Sendmail and neccesary parts).

In sendmail.cf file, I enter my domain name: huesoft.com.vn. I also configure DNS with a record MX :
huesoft.com.vn IN MX 5 huesoftserv.vnuhcm.edu.vn

and then, In Windows machine, I use Outlook express to send mail. But I meet following message:

"Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account:
'192.168.61.117', Server: '192.168.61.117', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F"


Help me!

what is the error that sendmail gives you? look at /var/log/mail/access what do your sendmail config files say ?

Please remember that SMTP != POP3. Sendmail is an SMTP gateway. If you want POP3, then you need something like Qpopper or popa3d.
