HI how to solve this problem.
I installed postfix & sendmail

1 Answer


You can’t install both postfix and sendmail – they’ll conflict with each other. I would recommend keeping Postfix and uninstall Sendmail:

sudo apt-get purge sendmail
sudo apt-get install postfix --reinstall

Are you able to access port 25 on remote servers? What’s the output of:

nc -vz smtp.gmail.com 25
