View Full Version : smtp for ubuntu

i don't know if this is the right place for this post but i'm kinda desperate.. i feel like crying coz i think i can't finish my project on tym :( i wish i can

here's my problem.. does anyone know where i can get a free smtp server for ubuntu? or is it built-in in ubuntu? there is this web application which can email using smtp but the problem is it was created in windows and the smtp server which was used is good for windows only.. i need to do revisions in the said web-application and i'm doing it in ubuntu. i need to maintain the email functionality so i need smtp for ubuntu.. sorry if my questions are rubbish but i don't know much about linux and i really need to work on my project as the deadline is soon..

uhmm.. the web application accepts a post then answers the post through email using the email address of the one who posted..

your installation probably has postfix, just configure sendmail tags in your php.ini and you will be fine ;)

well, i dont know what is your web-application, i supposed it was done with php but I dont know. But ubuntu has postfix anyways, that is what you want =)
