    Hi ...

    I just set up a new server. It has been colocated and everything is fine but I can't send emails.

    Here is what my error log shows:
    Any help would be great.

    courier-imap instead of dovecot ... sendmail. Can send but not receive

    Sorry that I am do not know very much about email config.

    I got rid of dovecot and compiled courier-imap

    Now I have courier-imap and sendmail servers on.

    Seems to be working fine ... but I can receive mail.

    My server is a colocation setup so I really don't know my fully qualified domain name FQDN

    I am running a DNS server and I should be able to use jpre.net at my host for receiving mail. I just don't know how to do so.

    What is the best way to configure this.

    Again ... I can now send email, but my hostname is comming up as "pcmg.pri" which is not even in my hosts file (don't know where that came from).

    Yikes ... I really need help.

    What's in your main.cf?

    Also, make sure that your MX record points to your server. You can check that with
    Code:
    dig mx yourdomain.com
