Cannot send email through Squirrel Mail ...

Posted by mickscool, 07-27-2008, 12:29 PM
Hi Friends, I have a dedicated server with godaddy and it has squirrel mail/sendmail/dovecot etc installed on it. I am able to log-in to squirrel mail but when I try to send email, it fails. Even it's not able to receive email. I restarted sendmail but it still does not works. I tried to send email through command line but it does not work either. Can someone please help ... Thanks

Is this a new server? By default sendmail's configs only allow local mail actions. This has to be enabled to allow non local delivery.

Thanks a lot, Can you also tell me which parameter needs to be edited and in which file?

It has been a while. The files are in m4 format. I think if you are not familiar it may be best to get your host to check. See the man page for sendmail to learn. I currently use exim. Sorry for my forgetfulness.

If I remember correctly, you do not need to configure anything to send email. But you do have to configure virtual host domains and email accounts to receive email properly Try the following command to send mail: cat /home/mysite/public_html/license.txt | mail -s 'subject' myemail@hotmail.com Please check /var/log/maillog and see if the email is sent out

edit /etc/sendmail.cf search for nd replaceit with your servers default ip address Restart sendmail.

Thanks Guys, Before I try out your solutions, I got the support email reply back from godaddy.I would like to share the email with everyone in case someone else encounter this issue: I followed the directions and my site went down. So i will check after 24 hours and try again and hope it works. Otherwise I will try your solutions ... Thanks Again
