Thumbs up

Hi,

first try sending mail on the server it self from one user to other...

and get you concepts clear regarding on any email server works....

normally there is only one mail server and the email clients get connected to server to send mail (all users on server itself not on different systems)

also use this method to trouble shoot or test mail server :

Quote:
telnet localhost 25
HELO localhost.localdomain
MAIL FROM: from_who@domain.com
RCPT TO: to_who@domain.com
DATA
.
QUIT
