    Hi, I'm using sendmail on my Fedora Core 3 box, but when I connect to it with a client PC I cannot send emails. I've been trying to find a solution for hours, but no luck... :mad:
    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Thanks, Ingo

    By default, sendmail on RedHat and Fedora accepts connectios only from 127.0.0.1. You have to change that.

    If you have webmin installed, go to Webmin->Servers->

    Sendmail->Sendmail Options. Under "SMTP Port Options" you often find the following entry:

    Code:
    RH: Port=smtp, Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA
    Please change it to "Default" and then click on "Save and Apply". And also have a look at your firewall settings... ;)

    Right, it' working now. :)
    Is there a special resaon why this is the default setting in Fedora? Like it's fun to confuse users? :(
