How can I receive mail on a droplet?
I am running a CentOS 6.5 x32 droplet in AMS2 and would like to be able to receive mail on the commandline. Sending mail from a SSH session is OK! It arrives properly at the recipient as being from the intended user.
Replying to that mail results in:
This is the mail system at host mta-rs-dfw01.mxhero.com.
I’m sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
be delivered to one or more recipients. It’s attached below.
For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster.
If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
delete your own text from the attached returned message.
The mail system
USER@MYDOMAIN: connect to
MYDOMAIN[DROPLET IP]:25: Connection refused
This VPS is not meant to be a mailserver and will not support a lot of (mail)users.
Incomaing mails are to be to trigger certain scripts…
Probably missed a step… or two!
Any assistance will be immensly appreciated!
