Sendmail issues

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

Been a while.

I bought the PS3 and a game called Battlefield: Bad Company…. it’s way too addictive… By the way my PSN nick is andreakis so if you wish to add me ur welcome hehehe

Today I was installing a system that sends emails. The server has sendmail installed and mails kept going into the queue and were never sent… The queue report said the following:

“Deferred: Connection refused by XXXXXXXXXXXX”

So it looked like mails were not being sent. I Googled for the solution and finally one worked. It’s very simple, just change the following line:

O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Address=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA

For this:

O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp, Name=MTA

It worked for me, still don’t know why but I’ll digg deep into it this weekend.

Hope this helps!
