Thats alot up there, but I set up exim4 with a dynamic dns and than using gmail as my smart host, Im not sure if its working how would I tell? Let me know if anything in the following steps that I've done improperly. I just wana allow the server to send mail.


dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config

Summary of the steps:
Split Config into small files: No
General type of mail config: Mail sent by smarthost; no local mail
System mail name: mattc908.dyndns.org
IP-addresses to listen on for incoming SMTP connections: 127.0.0.1
Other destinations for which mail is accepted: Blank
Visible domain name for local users: mattc908
IP address or host name of the outgoing smarthost: smtp.gmail.com
Keep number of DNS-queries minimal: Yes

Next to further set up the Gmail:
add the lines:
smtp.gmail.com : myname@gmail.com : passwd
gmail-smtp.l.google.com : myname@gmail.com: passwd
to /etc/exim4/passwd.client


So what would I go from here, what would I setup? How would I check if it can send mail?
