Local host issue?

Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
It's possible firewall?
0
 
lhrslsshahiAuthor Commented:
It doesnt seem to be firewall as there is no log output so it doesn't even try to contact Mail server.  Maybe an older version of ghetto script is needed that works on 4.0?
