Re: How to send mails from SUSE

Hi I can able to send mails locally. that is to local users.

Ex:

# mail -s "hai" ze4egi

here "ze4egi" is local user available in that server itself.

But i want to send mail to the users availabe in other domain.

for that, i think we have to configure postfix.

but i dont to know how to configure.

what is the configuration file for postfix.

Re: How to send mails from SUSE

mail is an universal command to send mail through MTA
and sendmail, postfix, qmail etc. all are MTA (Mail Transport Agent) which only carry and distribute the mail.

so you can also use mail -s in SUSE.
