Sendmail: Can receive but can't send.


Error from outlook express.

"The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'terrapin', Server: 'terrapin', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"

**Tried to telnet from my linux server(IP:192.168.1.100) (Port:25)**

telnet: connect to address 192.168.1.100: Connection refused

**This is a log of what services are running. I noted that 127.0.0.1 is listed
for port 25. Does it mean anything?**[root@gateway /]# netstat -an | grep tcp |

Any ideas you all can guess from here? I've done everything the setup guide wants.

Edit your /etc/mail/sendmail.mc

Change this: DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl
Into this: DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp, Name=MTA')dnl

Then do: make -C /etc/mail
Then: service sendmail restart

Now test.

Miles.
