General :: Sending Emails To Outside Email Addresses?
Sep 14, 2010
I have sendmail setup and it works fine sending emails to outside email addresses. When I try and send email to our internal groupwise server the mail never gets there and I get an error message in the log user unknown.
I come from more of a programming background but have been giving the task of sending backup results from a linux box in an email to external email addresses, I have spent days looking trough google for info but cant seem to find anything simple, I have looked at postfix but because I don't understand networks, hosts, nameservers etc. What I need to do to allow mail get sent from the linux box to external mail address. I have outlook connected to an exchange server on windows and I can ping the linux box from my windows command so surely it cant be to much involved.
I'm using the mail command and I am able to send mail to my gmail account with out any problems. However when I send mail to deco -at- mycompany.com I nothing happens and no mail ever arrives in my mailbox. It might be worth mentioned that my centos5 is a virtual machine on the same server as the company exchange mail server.
I have my email on a separate partition so that my email doesn't get destroyed when I do new linux installs (I have emails from 5 years ago now). I also keep my sylpheed email addressbooks. This partition is writable by anybody and I have also made my user the owner of this partition during each linux install (media/email). When I set up sylpheed I tell it that my email is in /media/email and then it is able to write incoming messages to that location. The problem I am having is that I make symbolic links for my addressbooks from ~/.sylpheed* to /media/email using this:cd ~/.sylpheed*rm addrbook-000001.xmlln -s /media/email/addrbook-000001.xml addrbook-000001.xmlSylpheed finds my addressbook ok on my email partition but changes that symbolic link to a file on ~ when it writes new addresses. What am I doing wrong...I want it to write new addresses to my email partition?
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.
Had anyone tried downloading a free SMTP server from the web and use it to send emails in nagios, when the services are down, an email notification will be sent.Right now i need a smtp server in order for me to send email notifications, are there any recommended ones?
We use mutt to send out emails.mutt -s "Test" -e "Content-Type: text/html" firstname.lastname@example.org < message.htmlWe send out our email updates in HTML format. We would like to send emails as multi-part containing both a text version and an html version. How do we create such a multipart message in Linux when the email subject, and HTML and text versions of the email body are given?Can we use mutt to send the multipart email created in step 1, from the linux prompt?
here is a fragment of a bash that i have to send an email when a back Up is made. basically a usr runs the sh - it asks for the job num and I read that from standard in . I do a tar of the drv to tape and I wish to send an email that job such and such has happened. My problem is : the subject of the email. I can set it - but if i try to use a var ( as in the $jobNum ) that Does work in the mail body - the subject comes out blank. I have also tried to buld a text file and shove that in the SUBJECT. my Q is how can I use a var in the subject.
# email subject ### so I have tried bulding and reading a tmp file -no works EMAILSUBJECT="/tmp/emailsubject.txt" echo "backup job" $jobNum >$EMAILSUBJECT
I cannot send an email link in Namoroka. I go to file-send link and nothing happens. I tried to find the problem by about:config in Namoroka. I just found /usr/bin/mozilla-thunderbird. With my limited knowledge I do not know what else to look for.
i have a problem regarding our email server. all the users can send email but they cant received mail. .when hitting send receive on outlook there were no error found. .i have already reboot the server and restarted the sendmail services but still same problem.
i've got Evolution as an email client in Fedora 12.ve got only one IMAP account configured, which seems to be working OK. However, temporarily it is not sending emails. I write an email and hit send/receive and get error. "Error while sending message" ir seems that it is downloading messages, but not sending. There is a quick, but annoying solution to it: restart Evolution. As soon as it is restarted (close and ope the application) it is working OK for some time.
I have an rsync backup job scripted and run by cron at 12:00 every day. It emails me the log from rsync. The problem is that it sends the same email every minute starting at 12:00 and ending at 1:00. I can't figure out what I did to cause this. It is not happening on my other ubuntu server.
Code: # m h dom mon dow command * 12 * * 1,2,3,4,5 /home/barry/bin/backup.sh > /dev/null Code: #!/bin/sh rsync -aut /usr/share/library /mnt/backup/WordPress > /home/barry/backup.log
I have wordpress installed on my VPS, which is running 10.04.1 LTS. I appear to be having an issue whereby the server isn't sending out emails to new users, nor to myself when I get comments on the blog.I'm at a dead end for where to look next, because the settings are exactly the same as they were with my previous VPS (and they were always pretty generic), but yet it doesn't work.
I have installed Ubuntu onto a machine and am trying to get it to receive fax's and email them to me! After spending days on this I have installed efax-gtk and have successfully set it up to receive fax's and email them to me!
Everything is working, I can send and receive fax's ok, But when I set it with the 'mail_fax' script, I dont get an attached file, All I get is a directory location of the temp file, Witch is obviously deleted by the 'mail_fax' script! No Attachment is in the email.
/home/dell/efax-gtk-20101103135335.pdf Fax 20101103135335 received by efax-gtk attached All I want is the attachment to be attached!
I'm trying to get logwatch to email me. I think my logwatch.conf file is okay. I have postfix installed. The mailer as far as I can tell is set correctly ("usr/bin/mail"). When I run logwatch - I get "no mail for aubrey"
Heres my logwatch.conf file: Code: linux-qwkb:/home/aubrey # edit /usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/logwatch.conf ######################################################## # This was written and is maintained by: # Kirk Bauer <email@example.com> # # Please send all comments, suggestions, bug reports, # etc, to firstname.lastname@example.org. # ######################################################## .....
We have connected two systems with ethernet cables and have configured the two systems with ipv6 addresses. The IP of one system is 2001:0db8:0:f101::1 (let's say X::1) (This system runs OS Fedora 10) and the other is 2001:0db8:0:f101::2. (Let's say X::2) (This system runs OpenSuSE 10.3) We are able to ping from both systems to the other. We are able to ssh into the one with IP X::2 from the one with IP X::1, but not vice versa.
We have disabled iptables on both systems by using the following commands: /etc/init.d/iptables save /etc/init.d/iptables stop on the fedora 10 system and # iptables -X # iptables -t nat -F # iptables -t nat -X # iptables -t mangle -F # iptables -t mangle -X # iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT # iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT # iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT on the openSuse system.
The error we get in trying to ssh from the openSuse system to the fedora system is: ssh: connect to host 2001:0db8:0:f101::1 port 22: Connection refused
We're trying to write server and client code to send data from one system to the other using SOCK_DGRAM. The code works fine when we run both the client and server on the same system. However, we are not able to send data from one system to another when we use the IPv6 addresses to run the client and server programs.
The error we get is: sendto(): Operation not permitted
The codes we are using for the server and client programs can be found here in beej's guide here : [URL]. We've only substituted the appropriate addresses in the right places... We've disabled the iptables...
When I am using Mailutils to send messages to myself as a test, I get them but they are from <"ryandward@ryandward"@gmail.com> which is not a valid email address and I have no idea why my system is configured to send them from this address. This is indicative of some problem there is going on in my system.
I am using the Postfix SMTP server for sending emails. However I just did a default installation and subsequently someone is sending spam using my SMTP server. I would like some help on securing my Postfix server and to block these mischievous emails being sent from my server.
i have problem in sending emails using outlook on my client machines i.e XP i am getting the error Relay access denied. i am using fedora 9 as our server. with dovecot and postfix and fetchmail.it was working fine previously .
One of our postfix servers is for sending/receiving internal emails only. When a user entered a wrong recipient address, it will take almost an hour for the user to get the "Recipient address rejected" email. What can be done to let the user get the "Recipient address rejected" email quickier.
I have installed an SMTP server using ... sudo apt-get install postfix but I sill cannot send emails from my local machine to my yahoo account using ... echo "Hi Steve que tal ?" | mail -s "test message" email@example.com
I just got control over a server that was hacked several months back. The other day we started receiving rejected emails sent from my server to a yahoo email address that is no longer active that contained users login information. I am trying to find the process that is sending these emails. So far its been like finding a needle in a haystack. The email that is being sent is appending the login information each time it is sent so there must be a local file that contains this information. I have tried using grep and find without any luck.
I have a 64bit linux server with 5 virtual hosts on it. When someone fills out a contact form on one of the sites...I get 15-20 copies of the same email. At first I thought it was the kids clicking send multiple times because the first emails were coming from the children's ministry "Email The Cast" section. But then I started getting multiples from the adult sites too. All contact forms are set to come to me.
What's stranger is that my registration section for one of the sites uses the SAME php script (different file) to email me a notification that someone has registered but I only get 1 copy of that.
