    can't use pop to send mail


    Hi,

    You can't use pop to send mail from your server!

    what you can do is relay your email via your isp's server...

    in the /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file you locate the

    dnl define(`SMART_HOST',`smtp.your.provider')

    and remove dnl + edit the smtp.your.provider to your isp's mail-server.

    then run m4 sendmail.mc > sendmail.cf

    restart sendmail...

    Very easy and takes 1 minute to do... (sendmail isn't difficult to configure, some people just haven't got the time to read trough the documentation...)

    If you want someting better then sendmail and postfix try exim (www.exim.org)

    Good luck

    Jonas
