Hello everyone, I’m with ubuntu server 12.04 + vesta panel, I am unable to send or receive email via webmail when I send an email it returns, and when someone tries to send me an email giving as if the address does not exist. <br>Would you like some help from you guys. <br> <br>thank you very much

Either way I still need to fo through the pain of creating a MTA right? <br>is there any good tut here for Ubuntu/Mint on how to make it?

That’s usually handled by sending out a verification email with a hashed URL that the user will click on to verify their account. <br> <br>If they don’t do that you can time out their account and delete it depending on how your application is setup. <br> <br>For this you also would not need a full blown MTA on your server.

Forget my last post, I was not thinking right, of course I have to use their email address to send somthing to them. what a silly question. <br> <br>What I want to know if for example, a dummy account registers with a mail, for example <br>Since its a dummy account I need to check its email inbox to see if the mail arrived. Or I still have to use a valid gmail/hotmail whatever account to check if the mail was successfuly sent? <br>That’s what I meant in my last question.

Well that would depend on your application or what you are coding. <br> <br>Since you mentioned its a contact form you would grab their name from the passed parameters to the form of their email and then send the email there. <br>

I’m not on linux now but will try it later. <br>Just one last question. When I send an email I have to send it to someone. How do I know who to send it to?

I think by default php.ini will be setup to use that so you can try it and it should most likely work.

If I simply install that i can send mail right away? or I still need to change something in the php.ini file?

Yes, just use the command line binary to send out going email: <br> <br>/usr/sbin/sendmail and most languages are well integrated for that to send out bound email with some simple wrappers or libraries.

using the sendmail? <br>I’m looking for a easy way to do it. this is just for fun so the less painful the better
