Sendmail hangs when trying to send mail.
Whenever I try to use sendmail to send email, the server hangs indefinitely and I am forced to restart the ssh session to be able to issue any commands. Even simply typing "sendmail" causes the server to hang.
I have taken the following steps to install send mail:
sudo apt-get install sendmail
I configured the hosts file at "nano /etc/hosts"
by adding this as suggested by a another user in the help community: "127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain pedrogarcez". So my hosts file looks like this:
Your system has configured 'manageetchosts' as True.
As a result, if you wish for changes to this file to persist
then you will need to either
a.) make changes to the master file in /etc/cloud/templates/hosts.tmpl
b.) change or remove the value of 'manageetchosts' in
/etc/cloud/cloud.cfg or cloud-config from user-data
127.0.1.1 pedrogarcez pedrogarcez
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain pedrogarcez
The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
- I ran the sendmail config using "sudo sendmailconfig" and answered 'Y' to everything.
