can't send/receive a mail at Solaris7

can't send/receive a mail at Solaris7

Post by resear » Wed, 28 Apr 1999 04:00:00


I finished installing Solaris 7, and now
I'm trying to check the system functionality.
Unfortunatley, I can't send/receive a mail at all.
All the mails are stuck at /var/spool/mqueue.
Since I'm not much about sendmail stuff,
I wonder if there's anybody know about this problem.
When I checked, Solaris 7 is  bundled with

    sendmail Version 8.9.1b+Sun

And here's the mail stucked at mqueue.

Malias database unavailable

H?F?From: root (Super-User)

Can you see any problems from this header?
I don't know this helps, but this system is a NIS+ server.
Any replies would be appreciated.



1. can't send mail (receive works fine)

  Ok, what am i missing??

  I can receive mail and browse the net just fine.  I use the KDE ppp
tool and mail client.  However I can't send mail.  Iin the mail client
settings I put use SMTP and gave the host of my ISP and port (110 or 25,
tried both).  But it won't work, goes through the motions though, but nothing
ever shows up on my account.  Set it to use sendmail instead but that
also didn't work.  Any clues?
