Well I've perused the forums but to no avail and feel more confused than ever
I was unable to send/receive external emails until I started "sendmail".
Now I am able to send emails but I am not receiving any.
Local network emails worked fine.
Should I install/start "fetchmail"?
To avoid port problems I have temporarily disabled all firewalls and was sending to and from a hotmail account to check if the mail server could be found from "out there". No mail error messages were received so one would expect to see the emails on the server
