I installed sendmail and dovecot and I am able to send and receive emails from mutt as firstname.lastname@example.org. I want to be able to add this account to gmail as alias, to send and receive mails via webbrowser.
I tried to setup sendmail to use myowndomain.com as external smtp but it didnt work.
What should I do now?
Each time I try to add it to gmail I get new error in log :
sm-mta: uACF7Fwr014600: mail-wm0-f53.google.com [184.108.40.206] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to MSP-v4
Edit: In gmail in settings there is a tab "accounts and import". There you can add "another address you own". To do this you need server address, mail, username, password and port. I tried many combinations, yet I'm not able to add it. Always ends in error.
The purpose of this is that I will be able to log into my gmail, compose new mail and send it (or receive) as email@example.com. I've done that with my hotmail address and my university mail. I also have one firstname.lastname@example.org which was a leftover from times when I tried to setup postfix. This one almost works: I can send mail as root from web browser, but when I want to receive this email it is only accesible on server via mutt. I tried to replicate this entry using email@example.com but failed.
My understanding of 'relay' is that my server sends mails through my gmail account. I dont want that. I just want firstname.lastname@example.org was in the FROM header of mails I send from browser's gmail (not email@example.com) and to be able to receive mails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in browser's gmail.
