Sendmail config

Hi ,

I have a doubt regarding the sendmail.
I had complted the sendmail configuration in the server.
Now am able to send the mail to each user inside the current server(Only for internal use).
Now i want send and recieve the mail in a outlook client.
What to do for that?

I tried to configure the mail account in my pc(outlook express). But am getting the following error message.

"The connection to the server has failed. Account: '10.20.20.75', Server: '10.20.20.75', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"

Am able to send and receive the mails inside server by using the "mailx" command.Is anything has to be done in the serve side?


Pleas help...

Thanx and rgds,

Prasanth

Re: Sendmail config

Shalom,

You can't send directly to an outlook client because it is not a mail server that can accept and hold mail.

You can install qpopper from the Internet Express program at http://software.hp.com and then you have a popmail server tha can be accessed by an outlook client.

You may also be able to use the cyrus server to provide imap/popmail access.

The error message is partially meanginful. The connection to the server has failed. It has, because there is not a popmail server running there.

Re: Sendmail config

Hi,

Thanx ...

This is my first time experience in the mail server concept.Shall we can use the same server where sendmail is running as a popmail server.
What has to be done for that?
