    Sendmail- Need help setting up


    I have sendmail installed. I only need it to send emails outbound. I only have access to the machine via SSH and through Webmin. Inside webmin I see that the emails are not being sent. Dont know why not...

    - I have the domain and the servers name inside the outgoing domains.
    - Send outgoing mail via host is set to Deliver Directly
    -Network ports set to Accept email on port 25 and all addresses
    - For local Domains I have listed: localhost
    localhost.localdomain


    I'm not sure what I am missing / Overlooked... I have tried emailing myself and it wont send an email to me. Several emails are getting returned Mail Delivery Subsystem

    You need a real domain (or a FQDN at least), not localhost.
    You can try localhost.localdomain, but you really need a mydomain.com with DNS, otherwise the receiving server will most likely reject the mail anyway.
