Response to: Outgoing mail not... going.

Thanks for your help. One thing I should mention is that when I use mail.mindspring.com as my outgoing mail server in Mail.app, all works fine (EarthLink is my ISP).

I get an appropriate response using telnet as described in the 'Setting up a Site Server' article. This is with the SMART_HOST definition.

I checked out the log file and here's what I get (usernames and system names removed to protect the innocent): I am sending mail using localhost as the outgoing mailserver:
