    send mail to an ISP


    I have a Freebsd box that I am using as a test server.
    I want to run some scripts that send a summary to my email address (located at ISP)

    What do I need to configure to do this? I do not want to receive mail on the server other than the system messages.

    I tried to send some mail to myself by using

    Code:
    mail -s "Testmail" myemail@domain.com
    message goes here
    I have pressed ctrl-d but nothing appears on the other end. I had a feeling this used to work but I am probably wrong.

    any ideas?

    cheers
    I am on a journey to mastering Linux and I got a bloody long way to go!!!

    Well, I guess one way would simply be to block port 25 on the external interface?
