To help you in any way, you need to give some information. You can't ask; "My potatoe doesn't fit, what to do?"
Check logs, post your configs, check if you get any returns, check your ports, etc.

    sendmail:

    ctladdr=gustavo@gmf-tech.com (1000/1000), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=60146, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]

    i have uninstall postfix and install sendmail, got the same error connection refused.

    I followed step by step this procedure https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-setup-postfix-on-ubuntu-14-04, without success...

    Can you help me?

    • No problem, but just always give information and details when you have a problem (easier to answer).

      A common cause is because of wrong IPv6 settings. You can either use IPv4, or correct your IPv6 settings. To use IPv4, edit the Postfix configuration file:

      nano /etc/postfix/main.cf
      

      and change inet_protocols = all to inet_protocols = ipv4 and restart or reload Postfix: /etc/init.d/postfix reload . Also flush the Postfix queue:

      postfix -f
      

      You can also solve the problem by setting up IPv6

      nano /etc/network/interfaces
      

      For example a IPv6 config:

      iface eth0 inet6 static
      address 2a00:d880:0:10::xxxx:xxxx
      netmask 64
      gateway 2a00:d880:0:10::1
      up ip -6 addr add 2a00:d880:0:10::xxxx:xxxx/64 dev eth0
      up ip -6 addr add 2a00:d880:0:10::xxxx:xxxx/64 dev eth0
      up ip -6 addr add 2a00:d880:0:10::xxxx:xxxx/64 dev eth0
      up ip -6 addr add 2a00:d880:0:10::xxxx:xxxx/64 dev eth0
      

      Hope I give you enough information with this and you get it fixing, if not you can just ask me
