sendmail on server A trying to send email to gmail or other email service and it times out
Posted on 2011-03-03
Trying to get a server of mine to send emails to a gmail account. I can send to my locally hosted email accounts but nothing goes through to a email service I do not host. I have other servers on my network that can send to gmail fine and sendmail appears to be setup the same.
I get time out responses from gmail.
internally I have a BIND server, qmail server and a mysql server. I have a subdomain setup on the DNS server for the server I am trying to send emails with. (originally the hostname was set to local host so I thought maybe it was a rdns rejection)
I didnt think sendmail required much setting up, I swear it was easy the last time I did this.
My problem is somewhat vague and I do apologize in advanced. I am hoping someone might have a suggestion on what to check.
