In Ubuntu 2011.04, I want to install an SMTP server for development tests, so I did this:
- sudo apt-get install postfix
localbecause I only want to access it from my computer
nico(my machine's name, pingable) as mail host name
postfix is running as confirmed by
sudo /etc/init.d/postfix status.
PROBLEM: I configured Thunderbird to use my
nico as an SMTP server with user
nico, but when I send an email a popup appears saying:
Send Message Error. Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP server nico failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMTP server settings are correct and try again, or contact the server administrator.
Did I forget something? I was following the simple steps from this blog post (I skipped the "further configuration" part).
