EASY tutorial for sending email to gmail account
Ok so after about 18 hours non stop reading tutorials online I finally decided to post online for help.
Here is my situation:
I need to setup email service in ubuntu server edition that uses my gmail account to send email (actually I don't care how I send email as long as it goes to ANY external email account on the internet) all I need is to send email not recieve email.
The reason I need this is so I can create an perl script to send an email to my phone when someone connects to my VNC repeater.
I looked at hundreds of tutorials on how to setup CA certificate and how to relay emails etc.. NONE WORK!!!!
I'm new to Ubuntu, Ive been using it for 3 months now (even though I grew up on mac) and desperatly need help!
I setup everything else with no problem (vnc repeater, apache, ftp, bind) but I can't get mail to work
I've tried postfix,sendmail,qmail, etc probably 6 different mail servers with no avail.
Please Help and give me a noob tutorial (step by step) on how to send email!
Thanks in Advance!.
P.S. assume that my ISP does not supply me with SMTP server, if needed let me know how to Reverse all my changes that I have done to default. running ubuntu 10.10 server edition
