I am using the 'mail' program but I can't send emails to
the outside world?

sounds like a problem with your mailserver, not your computer. The problem *may* lie in the smtp (outgoing) server

Do you have any more information?

You probably have a log file in /var/log for the mail server that probably has some detailed info.

I believe that the mailutils deamons are either pop3d or imap3d. You might want to ps for those instead of mail.

I'm assuming you're using Evolution. What did you use for your sending email server type? If your email account is Gmail or similar Evolution should have configured this right unless you changed something when you first started it.

Anyway, what type of email account is it?

what's that? Evolution? What's that?
I just try the sending mail steps via Ubuntu...
to my gmail as my destination but it seems failed and giving me that warning at the log report file. :confused:

Evolutions is the default E-mail client in Ubuntu.

This is a good guide for setting up E-mail using a Gmail account and Evolution.

http://greeennotebook.com/2010/06/syncing-gmail-and-evolution-contacts-calendars-and-mail-in-ubuntu-10-04/

It uses IMAP which will also rip all your saved messages from Gmail server.

It sounds like the OP may be referring to the command line 'mail' program as opposed to Evolution. IIRC, mail has to be specially configured to run across domains.

Could be. The OP needs to give some more info, but makes sense.

Wonder if the OP is running server...

yah, that one is the email client...
but, but, but...

I thought ubuntu has its own mailing service
that could be used as Php to send email without configuring
the real email, errr....? :confused:

i juz remember there is a 1 machine linux with ubuntu
my friend owned it, and he has joomla inside of it,
with php engine as of course, and he could send email using it.
seems straight forward... isn't?

~ correct me if i'm wrong.

There are simple open source email options that do work within Joomla. This isn't something that comes with Ubuntu or any Linux. It can be added to Joomla.

so, in other words...
ubuntu doesn't have its own mailing services
as Mail Server does?

Hmmm... i thought, within ubuntu
we could do not just as email client... :P

I found something that I think is for Ubuntu server but you can look into it.

This is one of the things I found for Joomla.
http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/contacts-and-feedback/email/4926

Here is the list of Joomla mail extensions.

I should have asked earlier just how you'd like to use this mail. I send, receive, etc. from evolution or using my web based email from the browser. What would you like to do? I have LAMP and Drupal on my laptop and haven't tried to set up email in Drupal.
