Configureing sendmail for fetchmail
Posted on 2004-11-26
I am using Suse Linux Professional 9.0 (2.4.21-243-default)
I am using pine and I have configured fetchmail to get mail from my ISP's pop server but when it tries to send it to me i get the following error.
fetchmail: SMTP connect to localhost failed
fetchmail: POP3> QUIT
So it connects to the POP server and sees the mail but when it tries to send the mail to me it can't.
I have tried to telnet to my localhost on port 25 but get this:
telnet localhost 25
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
My question is: How do I configure sendmail to allow localhost connections to port 25 or this a firewall / tcpwrappers issue or both? I don't really want to configure a mail server I just want to use pine via fetchmail (and sendmail i guess) to get my mail from my ISP.
