Setup mail?
 
Hmm, how would I setup mail (sendmail)? I got this message when trying to send a mail, I think:

W/o knowing anything else about your set-up my first
guess would be that you're using a dynamic IP, and that
the name that your server announces itself as doesn't
match any DNS records ... in other words: the server you're
trying to talk to thinks of your box as a spammer.



Cheers,

use the SMART_HOSTS option in your sendmail.mc:


define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp:mail.myisp.com')

I have a dynamic IP too, its always a good idea to try to get off those black lists, this one was the big one that cleared my IP for those really important sites.
