Sending email via an ISP account
Posted on 1998-06-11
Hello! I'm a Linux newbie and I'd really appreciate some help with my email problem.
I can't send email via my ISP.
***What I'm using***
The Slackware 3.4 distribution, kernel 2.0.30, is installed on my personal Linux box.
I'm running BSD sendmail 8.8.7.
I'm successfully using fetchmail 4.4.7 to retrieve and read mail from my account with my ISP using POP and a simple .fetchmailrc file in my home directory:
This works great for receiving mail.
When I run the outgoing mail queue to send mail via SMTP through my ISP, I get error messages saying that my machine has an unresolvable host name.
