    You need to install mailx which will install exim4 as the mta, am sure you could use nullmailer too

    Take a look at the mail logs. What kind of setup is your server because if its a test server on DSL or dialup you may need to relay mail via your ISP mail server.

    I have a pc with ubuntu and a DSL connection.

    I send a mail using:
    mail -s "some subject" [email protected] < message_body.txt

    And the logs says me:

    Post your postfix config lets see, seems like your server is accepting mail for gmail as a local domain which it should not.

    You will not be able to send mail to gmail until you change this
    Code:
    mydestination = gmail.com, david-desktop, localhost.localdomain, localhost
    To this
    Code:
    mydestination = david-desktop, localhost.localdomain, localhost
