I have installed Qmail to run on my RedHat 9.0 server. I have followed the isntructions to the letter but when I try to send email through the mail server I get this error message:

From Outlook Express:
<[email protected]>:
Sorry, I couldn't find a mail exchanger or IP address. (#5.4.4)

From Webmail:
Error, your e-mail could not be sent
SMTP Error: could not connect to SMTP host server(s)

Can someone help me figure this out?

Thank you so much for helping! I did not recieve your test email.

I assume that I must have setup the horde-toaster webmail incorrectly somehow. I also tried to setup a POP and then a IMAP in evlolution to try to connect and was also not able to send or receive.

For a short time I was able to receive email from the account but when it tried to send mail it refused connection to the smtp server.

It probably means that horde is taking over and keeping from qmail from doing its job.. you may want to look into a different webmail applicated. I like the stuff over at inter7.com personally..

one last set of questions...

1. What webmail would be good to replace the horde-toaster with, and how hard will it be?

2. This is the latest error message...

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at mpls-qmqp-01.inet.qwest.net.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

Are your DNS record(s) setup correctly for this site? Are you maintaining the DNS or a 3rd party? and what are the current settings for it?

His DNS is working fine :) Its that Horde is answering rather then the qmail binary when someone is sending to ports 25 and 110 bleh. Like I said Qmail is a royal pain but once you get it going .. its awesome as long as you don't touch it hehe. I was able to integrab spamassassin and also do mail graphing ... of course you can with Exim, Postfix, Sendmail ect.. but this box has never actually went down :) And its secure from the get go which is pretty cool too!
