Send Mail?
 
I am running an Apache webserver on Mandrake 9.1 on a crappy old CPU.

I use dyndns.org to forward my IP to my server.

How do I set up Sendmail so it will work? Right now it does nothing. I do not run a mail server. Should I? I use my msn email as my server admin name. How do I set this up so it will email me my form data?


This is the error

My local host is not a qualified name -set my hostname or my domain in etc/postfix/main.cf

Thanks for any help in advance

It seems like you're running postfix instead of sendmail. The postfix main.cf config file is usually really well documented on all Linux distros. I really think you should fire up your fav editor and take a look at /etc/postfix/main.cf. I think you will probably only have to enter the hostname to get this working. If you run into trouble I suggest the http://www.postfix.org/documentation.html page which contains lots of info on how to get postfix running the way you want it.
