send mail: cannot open mail: 25

Postby stressat » Mon Oct 12, 2009 20:01

Sabayon 4.2-x86/Gnome/kernel 2.6.29.
When i try to send e-mail whit a command output from terminal/as root (from example cat "file" | mail [email protected]), appears this message :
send-mail: Cannot open mail:25
Can't send mail: sendmail process failed with error code 1
:(

Output of iptables -L is :
sabayon dan # iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

What i can do?

hm... I take it you already verified that your ISP will allow sendmail to actually send mail outside your local network? Also, does local mail work, just between users?

ie echo "hi buddy" | mail <your username>

I just noticed mail fails for me as well. I'm going to see if I can verify this across a few machines; if I can, it's bug report time!

and it is indeed bug report time. Thanks for pointing this out!

oh dear... I'm afraid my browser is having issues with bugs.sabayonlinux.org. If you could create the bug, I would be much obliged.
