Can't get mail system to work properly!
I am trying to set a complete mail system on my FreeBSD 7.0 box.
To do that, i followed this guide.
As you can see, it is based on:
On top of that, I had:
At that point, i can connect to SquirrelMail and perform the tests found on the guide with success.
At first, I had no mails in my box so I tried to copied a file from the root to my user. Clearly, i copied /var/mail/root to /var/mail/my_user and I could see the mails in my_user inbox once connected to squirrelmail. I took this as a proof that Dovecot and SquirrelMail were working properly.
The main issue is that I can't send an email, even internally. I tried, through squirrelmail, from my_user, to send an email to root or to my_user itself, I got no error, but didn't see the mail in the inbox (root's mails are redirected to my_user).
As I can perform the tests on exim and i can see the mails from /var/mail/my_user, I guess that Exim stores the mails received in another place. Where can I find this information? How can I know where and how Exim stores the mails?
An other thing is that I would like to have all the log messages redirected to the mail of my_user as well. I installed logwatch via portinstall but... the command logwatch is no where to be found. Am using bash2 as a shell so it should not be a rehash issue. I tried to disconnect myself and connect again but... nothing. Even the whereis command is giving only the port and the man page...
I just typed : portinstall logwatch
Is there anything else to do?
Thank you all!
well I got logwatch working.
Something disturbing is that it has a Sendmail section saying that it handled some errors while it was (and still is) not running when i performed the sending mail tests. How is this possible??
