My sendmail doesn't seem to work. I know my internet is working and I have a connection as I am using the wireless card right now. What could be the problem.
One strange thing is that I tried connecting to the local host by
telnet 127.0.0.1 and it says connection refused.
Why could be the problem?
I give this command at the prompt
(cat fileame) | sendmail firstname.lastname@example.org
May be I need to change the sendmail configuration? How to do that if I really have to change the configuration.
when i run
#mail -v- q
I get this
Running /var/spool/mqueue/j3UGa8mk003842 (sequence 10 of 10)
<email@example.com>... Deferred: Connection timed out with mail.alpha-t.org.
Why is it doing Deffered ?
What does it means?
