Description of problem:
I am running redhat linux 9 on my system.
-My Mozilla mail client can send and receive emails.
-My webmail (squirrelmail) can ONLY receive emails. Note: mails sent out by
squirrelmail never get to their destinations.
I took a loot at my mail log file and this is what I find:
Jun 15 04:47:59 interactives sm-msp-queue: h5C6Ms1o002361:
to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>, delay=3+05:25:05, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay,
pri=7050663, relay=[127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by
What could possibly be the problem here?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.4.20-8, kernel 2.4.20-18.9, sendmail 8.12.8-5.90
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I log into webmail or use (run) a testmail php script on a web browser
2. then send an email to different (outside) accounts.
3. Email never gets to its destination
4. Check my maillog file, and there is a 'connection refused' problem
Actual Results: Mail never gets to its destination, even though I usually get a
confirmation message saying: "Your mail yas been sent"
Expected Results: Sendmail should successfully connect to [127.0.0.1] and
deliver the mail
I am running redhat linux 9 on my machine (i386) as a server (installation)
package. Recently upgraded (kernel) packages that needed upgrade from Red Hat
Despite all these, the 'Connection refused' problem remains
Seems to work fine for me and I can only suspect configuration problems
on your installed server. Please look into the log files for this.
