qmail grief
Hello again,
I am having a world of trouble with qmail. (again!)
I'm not completely new at this qmail game, having setup 3 servers now, but am having difficulties with my latest. I use the qmailrocks way of doing things & have everything set as per that site.
I am (fairly) sure that all the control files are correct but every time it tries to connect to my remote smtp server I get --> Sorry,_I_wasn't_able_to_establish_an_SMTP_connection._(#4.4.1)
I have tried this manually thru telnet & it works no probs.
I would like to follow the commands qmail-send sends to the remote server. Can anyone tell me how this is done?
Thanks to all

Use a packet capture or sniffing tool to see what's going on on port 25... ethereal is a reasonably good one.

Last time I saw this problem, it was because there was no MX record for the domain. The admin was trying to run with just an A record. As soon as the MX was added, problem was fixed.
