OpenSUSE :: Change From Address With Mail Command

Dec 5, 2010

Despite what the man page says, and what I have read out on the web, I cannot get the mail command to let me change the "from address"
I have tried to change the reply address (-R
I have tried to change the from address (-f
..... and so on
Anyone have any luck, from the command line (as I am setting up cron jobs) in changing the "from" address?
echo test | mail -s "This is a test" (this is the basic command I wish to use, but change the "from address")

OpenSUSE Network :: Mail Server Outgoing Address?

Feb 15, 2010

I just set up a new router for our home office. I've enabled traffic logging, and I'd like to have the logs emailed to me. However, in order to configure email-notification, the router needs and outgoing mail server. Forgive me, but I don't really understand the terminology being used here. I've googled this a bit, but I'm not sure I now what "outgoing" vs "incoming" mean in the context. I tried using my gmail account as the outgoing mail server ( but it requires TTLS encryption, and there's no option for that on my router.

So I figured I'd setup a simple mail server on my local network. I have a dedicated server machine, so I'd just configure a mail server there. But I got stumped at the first input box (in the yast module):"Outgoing Mail Server".That's what I wanted to use this server for. What is this "outgoing mail server"? I understand it in a normal emai context (I think) but this is confusing me. I've read through the HowTo on the openSUSE wiki, but it still doesn't answer this question.Isn't there some way to have a simple, local mail server (without MX records and the like) so I can send email from a local machine?

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Access Address Book When Clicking On Select In K-mail

Aug 22, 2011

I have recently zypper dupped to opensuse 11.4 from 11.3. My only problem is I am unable to access my address book when I click <select> when sending a new message; only recent addresses show in the window that pops up. Even if I select <all> in the list of choices, only <recent addresses> show up. In the useful tips that appear upon opening K-mail it states that if I click on < folders> then < Mailing list management> I will be able to select and manage all of my address books. But when I click on <folders> the <mailing list management> is faded telling me that it is not enabled. My question is what must I do to enable the mailing list management to be enabled? I have enabled mailman with no help.

OpenSUSE Network :: Specifying Smtp Relay On Commandline Of Mail Command?

Aug 9, 2011

On my opensuse 11.4 box (although I assume the version is irrelevant), I'm trying to figure out how to do something with the mail command. We have multiple smtp relay servers and sometimes I have to test to verify that mail is bouncing off of them successfully. On my laptop, in my file for postfix, I've got the relay server listed. But to test multiple servers, I have to change the, restart postfix, send message, and then repeat for each test.

I'm trying to figure out a way to specify the smtp relay on the command line. I've been playing with the -S option which is supposed to allow variables and one of the variables in the man page is 'smtp'. I've tried several different syntaxes but nothing seems to work.

The closest I've come is:
mail -S smtp -s "test" <

That syntax doesn't give me an error but it still routes the message off the smtp server listed in which is not

Server :: IPV6 Mail Address Not Listening On 110

Feb 23, 2011

I've registered a top-level domain pointing to my IPv6 address (6to4 tunnel). Everything looks ok, dig command, nslookup command shows requested output, but: I'm not able to connect to on 110 port. I still get an error messaged, that connection has been refused. I've populated the ip6tables with commands to open desired port but with no success. I'm listening on 25, am able to connect to this port, but not to 110.

Command netstat -an | grep "LISTEN " shows that I'm not listening on 110 port, although I'm just added this port to the firewall exceptions. Telnet to ::1/tunneled IPv6 address is successful. Postfix installed, configured properly, ping6 working. Everytime I try to send email from external domain, I'm advised that the mail domain is not pointing to A record.

Debian :: No Auto-complete Of E-mail Address Evolution

Aug 11, 2011

Despite enabling the "auto-complete" to complete an e-mail address from my personal Address-book, it doesn't work. After pressing on the "To"-button, no e-mail address is visible in the list of contacts. That is strange since the contacts are visible within the address book itself. However, when I typed the name of a contact within the "Search"-field of the address book, it also shows no result. Strange... Additional info: two days ago I replaced addressbook.db in Debian manually by the addressbook.db from Ubuntu 11.04 (I'm migrating from Ubuntu 11.04 to Debian Squeeze). It seems that there is no connection between the visible contacts in the address book and the rest of the Evolution. How can I solve it?

Fedora Networking :: Automatically Send E-mail Containing IP Address?

Dec 2, 2009

I have several computers at work running Fedora 12. From time to time I need to remotely connect to them, usually via ssh. Each computer is assigned an IP number automatically upon startup, however due to circumstances beyond my control they are not recognized by host name by the domain server. Therefore I require the IP addresses in order to connect rather than the host names. I have no way at present to rectify this situation.

When there is a reboot, I am not always guaranteed that the IP address will be the same as before, although in practice this is usually the case. If the IP address is changed and I am logging on remotely, I am unable to connect! I can't know the number until I am again physically sitting at the computer.

As a solution, I would like each computer to e-mail me its IP address each time it boots. My first attempt was to run a script at the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local that runs ifconfig and places the output into a file. This file is then sent to my address using sendmail. The script works fine, but I note that the output from ifconfig at this boot stage does not contain an IP address! Obviously, it is being assigned later on in the startup process. Either that or the command ifconfig does not work the same at this stage as it does once I am logged in. I require somebody with more expertise than I to comment on that.

Finally then, my question is, at what point in the startup process is an IP address assigned and the output from ifconfig would contain this address? Is there a more appropriate place rather than rc.local in which I should run my script? Is there a more appropriate command rather than ifconfig that ought to be used instead?

---------- Post added at 05:41 PM CST ---------- Previous post was at 05:30 PM CST ----------

Let me show you my attempted solution in more detail in case you're interested. The script is called .SendIP.bash and is located in my home directory. Here's what it looks like (with some censoring to protect me from public ridicule):

# This script will send ifconfig information to my e-mail account.
# This allows me to have the latest IP address assigned to this computer.
cd /home/MyUserName
hostname > .IPmessage
date >> .IPmessage
ifconfig eth0 >> .IPmessage
sendmail -f$HOSTNAME < .IPmessage

As I stated above, the output from ifconfig does not contain the IP address when my script is called from rc.local.

CentOS 5 Server :: Sending Logwatch To External Mail Address?

Nov 4, 2009

My ISP blocks outgoing email if it does not login properly with a valid account. I successfully configured sendmail to use SMART_HOST and confAUTH_OPTIONS with confAUTH_MECHANISM set to LOGIN PLAIN.

It successfully sends email because I tested it with evolution sending through, but I need to specify as the email address for root.

But it doesn't work for logwatch because it sends as from root@localhost.localdomain, and my ISP's smtp server rejects it. The message I get back in root@localhost account is the following:

----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to
>>> MAIL From:<root@localhost.localdomain> SIZE=581 AUTH=<>
<<< 550 5.7.1 Client does not have permissions to send as this sender
554 5.0.0 Service unavailable

I thought that I should masquerade all emails from this domain, so I configured sendmail as specified in [1] section " Masquerading", but it doesn't work. It seems that masquerading in sendmail is broken or something is wrong in the documentation.

[1] [URL]

I have sendmail 8.13.8-2 and centos-release-5-4.el5.centos.1.

Is there a way to specify the "" in logwatch ? or Is there a way to make it work the masquerading in sendmail so I can masquerade everything as coming from a specific account?

Fedora Networking :: How To Change The Mac Address

Feb 17, 2009

Some people may need to change the mac address of their ethernet network cards. This can be easily done with fedora with command line. Just follow the steps below:

1. Log as root on a textual console (ctrl+F2) or through "su -" command in your console

2. Print your network configuration with ifconfig

[root@localhost ~]# ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:8B:6A:7E:9E
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::218:8bff:fedb:7e9e/64 Scope:Link


Here, eth0 is the ethernet interface of your system. The mac address is put in red.

3. Change your mac address using the following syntax

ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:18:8BA:7E:90

The new value (in green) must be hexadecimal

4. if you have a dhcp server that distributes the adresses automatically, then request a new adress for your eth0 interface

[root@localhost ~]# dhclient eth0

5. Now, your interface is up and have a new mac and IP addresses. This feature may be useful if the network administrator ban you according to the mac adress, for example .........
