CentOS 5 Server :: Cannot Send Email - Bad Address
May 5, 2010
I've come across a strange issue where any email address that I email with mail returns an error "Bad Address"
Fairly new Centos 5.4 Install, sendmail is the MTA.
Linux 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:28:30 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
DNS is working fine so there isn't a problem.
[root@hn1 /]# host -t mx iol.co.za
iol.co.za mail is handled by 10 mg1.iol.co.za.
iol.co.za mail is handled by 10 mg2.iol.co.za.
iol.co.za mail is handled by 30 vulpix.iol.co.za.
Yet when I try to use mail it fails:
[root@hn1 /]# which mail
[root@hn1 /]# ls -lrth /bin/mail
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root mail 83K Jan 7 2007 /bin/mail
[root@hn1 /]# mail -s "test" firstname.lastname@example.org
Nothing in the maillog.
i have a small issue, to make our network more secure, i now require outgoing email to require authentication. Now the problem..i have a automated mailer that does not have the option to authenticate. is there a way to allow a certain email address or the local network to send out without authentication? If i cannot do this for a single email user to allow them through with authentication, how would i remove the authentication paramaters in the postfix smtp..

I'm not trying to setup a email server. ;) Firewall is set to disabled. SELinux is set to disabled.. How can i configure (which file?) the server to be able to send email out? When I try "mail -s testmail myemail@[URL]" and enter some text and then CTRL+D.. and return, I get command prompt again..
One of our client having issue with the qmail. The issue is if any one send email to email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org the email address which is not exist) it should send failure notification i.e."email does not exist" to the sender. The qmail server is not notifying that email address does not exist.
Debian 5, apache 2.2 I've got Apache up and hosting multiple sites. Each site will have a php contact me page that will simply dump an email to a fixed address. What program should i be using to accomplish this? I've used nullmailer before but that assumes you have a fixed smarthost somewhere which I don't.

this seems silly but I am changing ISPs and need to change my notification email address (for here). Under User Menu -> Edit account it shows my email but does not allow me to change my email. Since I am able to post I assume I am logged in correctly. So what did I miss?

Is there a way to control all email address in one server manage all email application software either win OS / MAC OS or Linux Distro. I have experience about email when the pc crashed i dont have any backup for their email data also email address.
I want to create a shell script that generates a file and then sends it via email from my Ubuntu desktop by using my Exchange 2003 Server which is on a separate windows machine on my network. I do not have an smtp server set-up so that is one of the reasons I want to go this route. The other is because I will be able to sync the emails sent from the exchange server.
what do I need to change in postfix/ dns to send email to one one of the email server hosted by 1and1.
I'm using zenoss to monitor system/ network and devices. I wanted to setup email notification , so I installed postfix. All works fine when I use my private account on yahoo or hotmail. but when I specify email account that is hosted by 1and1 I receive error 421. "

A question that I've asked myself (and google) many times but never got to an answer.Scenario:ServerA) postfix Primary MXServerB) postfix Backup MXAccording to the rfc a source mailserver can decide where to send email e.g.send an email to backup even is primary is reachable up and running.So my questions are: 1) how do I (live I mean) replicate messages arrived on any server to the other?2) How do I synchronise sent messages, message deletion, folder creation/deletion.Imapsync goes half way towards the solution but it needs to be run manually one off and you must specify source and destination.All I wanted really is a user to be able to use either server without having to worry about primary/secondary or what so ever.
I have installed Joomla on an Ubuntu 10.04 Server pc. The Ubuntu server is connected to my Novell NetWare network via static IP. I need the Ubuntu server to send mail to my mail server through smtp, my entire network has static IP's. The Ubuntu server does not need to receive mail only send, I have found that I could try use sendmail, postfix or exim4. I tried Exim4 but I am battling with the setup. For my situation what would be the best to use? What config's are most important to set?
I'm trying to configure postfix so smart daemon can send out notifications emails. My system will need to send emails to a mail server that is on the same local network. I have not had much luck in getting this to work, and am confused on what I need to setup to do this and how to set it up. Does my system need to be apart of the same domain as the mail server? If so, how do I do this? Is there any restrictions sending emails from the command line as the root user? Do I need to configure a relayhost?
Basically all I need to do is send emails to a local mail server, i.e. a mail server on the same local network. I do not need to receive emails. I am rather clueless as to how to set this all up, and what I need for this basic email functionality. I have read and tried many postfix configuration tutorials, but when I try to send out a test email to a email address on the local network mail server I always get "Connection refused" to the server and deferred or bounced status on my test email.
