Re: Email alert Insight 7

What about smtp?

Mail setup?

try this diagnostic:

sendmail -v -d8.99 -d38.99

type some text


Does the mail get anywhere? Do you get an error. If you can't get mail off the box thats the problem.

You might need to make sure DNS works so sendmail can find the destination.



You might have mail relay issues:



/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
/sbin/init.d/sendmail start
