    You need to add your domain in the accessfile in a terminal

    cd /etc/mail/
    pico access
    scroll down to where you see localhost
    then add <tab><tab> RELAY
    ctrl x y enter
    then type make
    /etc/init.d/sendmail restart
    then it should say mail server going down OK
    then mail server restarted ok
    then type netstat -pant
    and look for a line that says something like
    if you see that you are good to go
    if you don't let me know

    Also let me know if you need any clarification.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
