    Question Sendmail fails (SYSERR(root): collect: Cannot write)

    Hey guys,

    I am suffering since last night on this issue. I have finally set up send mail.

    and when i try to send a test mail lik ethis:

    Code:
    echo "My test email being sent from sendmail" | /usr/sbin/sendmail test@gmail.com
    I get this error message:

    Code:
    Jun 28 11:27:05 tp sendmail[14101]: r5SAR5il014101: from=hooman, size=39, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<201306281027.r5SAR5il014101@localhost.localdomain>, relay=hooman@localhost

    Why can't sendmail "write"? What do i do?

    Many thanks,
    Hooman

    Does it work with "sudo echo ..."?
