CentOS 5 Server :: Can Send Mail But Cannot Receive - No Errors

Aug 21, 2011

I recently purchased a domain and I have setup what I believe are correct dns records from the domain companies control panel. I have the domain pointing to my server and that's working fine. I also have an MX record for my domain. Now, I can send emails from my email account just fine however I cannot receive any emails coming in to my account. Heres an example:

[dalton@int-interactive mail]$ echo "hello world" | sendmail -v Connecting to [] via relay...
220 ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.8/8.13.8; Sun, 21 Aug 2011 14:45:16 -0400

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.

How can I send gpg encrypted mail automatically from the linux command line?

I'm a little stumped on this one, I've tried using mutt but it doesn't encrypt mail unless it's used interactively.

Does anyone know if you can use the build in mail command to do this some how?

Slackware :: Set Up Fetchmail And Mutt To Send And Receive Mail From The Terminal?

Mar 28, 2010

In my continuing quest to live without X most of the time, I am trying to set up fetchmail and Mutt to get and send mail. I only want to be able to send and receive text based mail, and so far I am running into trouble with what I think should be pretty simple. For receiving my mail, I believe I only need to create a .fetchmailrc file in my home directory with the entry:

Code: poll [URL] protocol pop3 username "myusername" password "mypassword" But I get:
2 messages for myusername at (7965 octets).
fetchmail: connection to localhost:smtp [] failed: Connection refused.
fetchmail: SMTP connect to localhost failed
fetchmail: SMTP transaction error while fetching from and delivering to SMTP host localhost
reading message of 2 (2734 octets)fetchmail: Query status=10 (SMTP)

It appears to me that it is finding mail but does not know where to deliver it and is refused a connection to my machine. Also, I cannot figure out how to set up my SMTP for my ISP in Mutt to send mail. Can someone point me to a simple tutuorial on how to do these things. I really only want to do what you would with Thunderbird, but from the command line.

Ubuntu :: Can't Send From Own Mail Server With Mail Client (Thunderbird Or Evolution)?

Jun 1, 2011

I have set up postfix and dovecot as per the Ubuntu anual and appear to have a functioning mail server.Using the sendmail command I can send mail and I receive mail in ~/Maildir. Using Thunderbird I can read any mails received but I can't send any mail from Thunderbird. I have tried with both STARTTLS and SSL/TLS and whilst I get the prompt for a password I keep getting the message my password for my server is wrong.I have ports 25, 465, 587 and 993. Is that all the right ports?When I ping my domain name it resolves to my router name whereas I believe it should resolve to my IP. Could there be a problem with my host file? I've had a play but to no avail.Here's the error in mail.log.

westwood@westwood-desktop:/etc$ tailf /var/log/mail.log
Jun 1 19:00:33 westwood-desktop postfix/smtpd[2376]: warning: localhost.localdomain[]: SASL LOGIN

Software :: Debian Mail Server Won't Send Or Receive Mail

Apr 22, 2010

i basically had this system installed for our mail system.The setup is as follows:

1. Operating system installed is Debian ver. 5.0.3

2. Roundcube is installed as a webmail(if its right for me to say that)

3. The server is hosted right here at our offices

4.The server uses relay system to send mail i.e. relays all our mails to our ISP

That all i can say about the configurations becuase thats as much as i understand it.The problem now is that we are not able to send or recieve emails from both internal and external.I tried to send mail to a collegue in the office who is on our local LAN,Roundcube says sent successfully but the person does not recieve the mail.i tried to send to my yahoo address but nothing.I dont know where these mails have been trapped.

Server :: Send Mail Won't Accept Mail

May 21, 2010

I have a bit of problem setting up sendmail on my server. I've gotten so far that I can send mail from my mail server and relay mail from my LAN computers through it. Also, local delivery seems to be working.The problem is receiving mail from other domains. When I send mail from my gmail account to any user in my domain the mail gets delivered back to gmail as it exceeds the max hop count.The mail gets bounced between my ISP mailserver which I use as smart host and between my server.The problem seems to be that my mail server won't accept any mail it is supposed to receive.
