I have a server ubuntu 9.10.I have 2 adsl lines, one with a static ip for incoming mail and a dynamicI have to do this to have backup.Is it possible to set the server so it will only use the line with the static ip to send email?At the moment the server uses both. It authenticates with the one supplier when it uses the other line.The problem is that when a mall comes in and has a forwarder on my server the supplier blocks it as it thinks it is spam, because it is send from another email. My IT guy is really battling to sort this out.
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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'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" email@example.com "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).
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.
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.
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'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.
i need to send a list of tasks each morning from a document to my team and i wanna do this from home; the thing is that i can only access my pc via ssh and i have to type the command for each person and takes to damn long. What i want is to send the document to a list of emails using only one command or a script.
I'm posting this from my Vista Laptop. I recently upgraded to Lynx and I can't access my Gmail account via the web. I can download emails with thunderbird, but I can't send emails. I can log into chat boards and read posts but I can't make posts of my own.Basically, Ubuntu won't let me push data out to the internet.
When I tried to post to this board from my Ubuntu box, it ends up where to save the file newthread.php.
I'm having trouble to send and receive e-mail using Thunderbird 3. When I tried setting up new account using the automatic configuration method,the result of scanning pop. and smtp. server returned 'none' with this orange circle. I assume it's the same problem that occurred when I first tried to install Evolution. But oddly,I manage to access the web-mail account provided by the ISP using the same information used to set-up Evolution and Thunderbird 3. Precisely I'm from Malaysia and the ISP is Streamyx.com. PC run on Ubuntu 9.10.And I've heard that the ISP is non-friendly of non standard e-mail applications.
I have a desktop that has been running Ubuntu for years. Finally I convinced my wife to get rid of windows XP and move to Lucid. I did a clean install of Lucid on her system writing over windows. After the install I installed Thunderbird using Synaptic Version 3.0.6 was installed on her system. On my desktop I am also running Thunderbird 3.0.6 We have several domains and mail servers on those domains.
They all use SMTP First, I installed the ISP email and that works perfectly. She can send and receive using our ISP's mail server. I then set up an email account in Thunderbird using the SMTP email server form one of our domains. She used to be able to send and receive from for one of our domains. She can receive email from that email server, but can not send (I can send and receive from the same domain using Thunderbird) Her SMTP and mine are set up identically:
Server Name: mail.[domain] Port: 50 Username: [user]@[domain] Secure Authentication: No Connection Security: No
She is able to receive email but when she tries to send. the connection in Thunderbird either times out. or gives a password error. The password is correct, because we can use Firefox, and go to the pop and log in.Also, she can receive email direct on her computer and has to log in using her password. So I opened Terminal and tested using:
telnet mail.[domain] 50
Trying [IP address] Connected to mail.[domain] Escape character is '^']'. 220 mail.[domain]
This leads me to believe something in Ubuntu is blocking her system from using Thunderbird to send emails through the email server. I've been at this for several days now. I did try totally un-installing Thunderbird using Synaptic. Then manually deleting the .Thunderbird file. Then doing a fresh install of Thunderbird using Synaptic. Still get the same results I am thinking that maybe App Armor is stopping this? Or perhaps some other security issue in Ubuntu like Linux Security Module? Otherwise the installation went flawlessly. We even got Skype working on the first try! Printers installed correctly and perfectly too.
I just loaded Ubuntu yesterday and am trying to get it set up.specifically my hotmail.I opened up the mail icon in the top bar and followed instructions from on of the threads here to no avail.When i open it up and try to send an email it doesn't work. I am way new to this. Just fed up with windows.
i m using code for sending email through GMAIL SMTP as given below... can any one tell me that how i can send EMAIL through Centos 5 CLI mode...in graphical mode we use webbrowser but in Command line how i can use this project.
I've set up a mail server using Postfix + dovecot. It works just fine sending email to users in my domain. However, I can't send email to external domains (like gmail, yahoo, etc) different than mine. I've tried sending from a remote connection using Evolution and I get the following message on mail.log
Jan 8 10:45:20 mail postfix/smtpd: connect from unknown Jan 8 10:45:21 mail postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from unknown: 550 5.1.1 <firstname.lastname@example.org>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table; from=<email@example.com> to=<firstname.lastname@example.org> proto=ESMTP helo=<[10.24.4.230]>
i ve talked to my isp provider and they made sure that all of the fields are set up correctly in evolution mail i can access internet through fire fox update manager works fine But there is a question reguarding my network settings i am useing a wired connection throught eth0 but my isp service provider needs a secured login and i cant insert a password or login in there respective places in the network setup
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?
