General :: Command Based Email Client To Send Email Through Secure Smtp?
Jul 26, 2010
In my Windows environment, I use email client such as Microsoft Outlook to connect to our email server to send email with the following configuration:
Incoming server (POP3): 995 - (requires with SSL)
Outgoing server (SMTP): 465 - (use encrypted connection SSL)
And the mail server requires user ID login and password.how do I setup a text command based email client in my Linux (Centos 5.1) to send out email through the existing email server above, which is in another machine? The email client has to be text command based because I need to use command line to send notification email from anothar application installed in my Linux (Centos 5.1) Since the email client will only be used to send email notification, I don't require setting up of an email server in my linux.
I'm trying to set up a basic smtp server on my local computer that I can send basic, unencrypted email through on port 25. I installed postfix, and I chose the following options:
Internet Site, System Mail Name: localhost Root and postmaster mail recipient: I left this blank For other domains to accept mail, I entered : NONE, localhost No force synchronous mail updates Local networks: 127.0.0.0/8
I'm looking for an easy way to send basic emails for the command line. I have tried configuring sendmail and mailx, but I have yet been able to receive a test email at my remote address. I have read through a fair amount of "how to" on this but I am a little confused and obviously not doing something right. My sendmail.mc file is as follows
Send an E-mail to your local account. Try two different ways to send and read it. How can you check that it really arrived? I decided to try using the 'mail' and 'pine' commands. So:
1) Using the root account, intending to send an e-mail to myself (root):
# mail -s "Hello root!" root Simple form of sending e-mails internally. ^D (this keystroke is to finish the e-mail) EOT
2) Using 'pine', another e-mail client: The mail is composed correctly, with 'To:' field set to:
which is my hostname, as my box runs in a VMWare Slack 12.2 image. In both cases, nothing was received in my mailbox (by typing #mail)... Additionally I don't see any new e-mails when I look at the file '/var/spool/mail/root'. Do I need extra information configuring my mail client/server/service?
Using CentOS. I have a cron setup to run this command: Code: /var/test.sh | mail -s "Test Cron" email@example.com The email is sent but the output of the script is not in the email body, it's just blank. I know there is some output because there are some echo statements in the script.I don't want to get an email for all cronjobs, just this one.
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.
I was wondering if there's some web-based email application (like Zimbra) or perhaps gmail can do it I'm not sure that can handle both receiving and sending of mail from multiple email accounts.I have about 4 different email accounts with various different domains and would like to have one platform which has an inbox for each account and from which I can send mail from any of the accounts
I'm attempting to send email used a textbook PHP application. The application fails to send an email.Do I need to setup an email server to get the ap to work?Right now, I'm getting email through Kontact via my web host, Yahoo mail and Google mail.
we had a server with Hostway, and it was running ubuntu. The server also had Plesk installed, which did some funny things. We had several websites on that server, and many email addresses. Then we changed servers. Now we have a server through Rackspace and it is also running Ubuntu. It also has Virtualmin installed, which generally does not impose as many unconventional changes on Ubuntu as Plesk did.
Rather than using Thunderbird to download my email (which is what I used to do) I've decided I'll start reading my email on the server. So I will ssh to the server and then use some email client, such as Alpine, to read the email. So I installed Alpine. I have an email account for "lawrence". The email address is lawrence @ krubner. Currently, when mail arrives for that account, it is stored here:
and then it is transferred to hear:
When I start Alpine, while logged in as lawrence, Alpine automatically sets up an inbox for me here:
How do I get Alpine (or any other client) to read from the correct folder? I'm fairly sure the email package (the MTA) at work on this new server is Postfix. As near as I can tell, my email is held for 24 hours in this folder:
and then it gets transferred here:
Alpine only lets me set one path for my Inbox, so I'm not sure what path I should set. If I use "cur" I will see all email 1 day late, but if I use "new" then I will miss email if I go a day without checking.
I want to setup an email client in order to send/receive emails, but since i am experiencing some issues with my ISP, i decided to setup an SMTP server with Postfix on my machine.The problem is that i can receive emails but i can not send.I read almost every thread in here refering to Postfix, but i could not find the problem on my configuration.So here it is..
Code: # See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version # Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first
I'm running a desktop-less version of Debian via Sun VirtualBox. The reason I'm doing this is because I don't have enough graphics or RAM power to have a desktop environment running on top of my current desktop; also, I want to learn Linux through the command prompt. I'm running the AMD64 version of Debian; I'm not sure if that's relevant.
My main goal is to be able to email useful files from the virtual Debian to my main computer, so that I can save them for later if I ever decide to do a "real" installation of Debian on this computer. I realize now that there's probably some "easy" way to do this by reading the virtual machine's hard drive, but at this point, my curiosity wants to see this issue resolved. I started off wanting to find a command-line program to send my email with, and one was built-in. The syntax ~$ sudo mail -s "Subject" firstname.lastname@example.org "This is a test email."
C^D Cc:C^D ~$
is what I found. I tried it, and (unsurprisingly), it failed. I then learned that the mail command calls exim4, or something along those lines, so I needed to configure exim4. Soon thereafter, I learned that Yahoo's SMTP wasn't public, but Google's was. So, I found this web page which described how to configure exim4 to allow for email to be sent to a Gmail account. I made one, and followed the page word-for-word.
I sudo-mailled a test email to my Gmail account, and nothing happened. I waited a bit longer, and still, nothing happened. Finally, I started looking around, and found out about the exim4 logs in /var/log/exim4. In my mainlog, I think that it's telling me that Google denied my connection: <date><time><random numbers and letters> == **********.gmail.com R=send_via_gmail t=gmail_smtp defer (111): Connection refused
So, now, I'm just stuck. I don't know what I did wrong, I checked my exim4.conf.template twice for spelling errors, but I don't think I made any. At this point, I can only hope that someone else has had a similar problem, or knows what I'm doing wrong (or haven't done yet).
i am working on a neat little bash script, and i want the output to be mailed to my email account. So far i have tried installing sendmail then running: mail -s Test email@example.com But that hasn't worked; and i did check my spam folder. Am i missing something or is there a better technique all together?
I have an issue with sendmail. I need to configure sendmail to send email from command prompt to any domain. This is just for the notification purpose. I installed sendmail and sendmail-cf and sm-client. The following are the configuration I have done.
Can anyone tell me what the pros and cons are between heirloom-mailx vs mailutils? This is for ubuntu 10.04 LTS. AT this point my only purpose is to use the mail command line program to occasionally send log output to email aliases.
I'm trying to set up a tool that emails me periodically (in my case, psad). It allows by default to define just a destination email for reports. Is there a general way to get this or similar tools to use a non-default SMTP server, with TLS? (e.g. gmail's SMTP)
I use CentOS 5.3 and I am trying to send a simple email through mutt.My command is:echo "test" | mutt -s "test email" myemail addressI have no errors displayed but the email never goes out of the machine. Also the /var/log/maillog is empty.I can see the queued email with:sendmail -bpSo emails never go out.This PC is connected to a network which the gateway is another Linux machine which is configured to be the default gateway in my /etc/resolv.conf as nameserver.
I use gmail for all of my emailing needs but stumbled upon linux counter at counter.li.org. Now I registered on the site and downloaded the machine-update script from the site. So I ran it and it collected the required data. But when I run ./machine-update -m as they have told, I guess no mail gets sent as I have to configure the mail program. How do I configure it so that it sends mail from my gmail address using stmp?
Currently i'm figuring out how to send email notifications to users when services went down in Nagios. I know i need to install and configure Postfix, which i did already. I assume that when i configured to point it to "Satellite mail system" is the correct one instead of other things like "Internet.." etc. So the configurations is when you have installed the Postfix and there would pop a lot of questions right? Other than that, what have i missed?
Oh ya, i remember something. Hmm. I do not have any so-called real smtp server so would that be alright? I heard that installed and getting the Postfix running would be enough as it serves as a MTA (mail transfer agent). So if i do not have any smtp server, the relay host= ' ' what should i put it as?
I keep getting emails from my 404 error handling system on my CMS saying "mail3.xps.idv.tw:25 cannot be found" with no referer. It would appear that someone is trying to use my server to relay spam to Taiwan. How do I check that my server has the right security to stop this happening?
I'm trying to learn how to send my self an email reminder using crontab, this is what I tried but I'm not getting the email.# m h dom mon dow command 33 13 * * 3 mail -s "This is a test" firstname.lastname@example.org < /home/joe/email.
