  Configuring sendmail on Jaguar
Subject:   can't send mail outside

First of all, I would like to thank the author of this article for his great work.
I configured sendmail exactly as I read it in the article. I've been able to send mail to several users on my computer, but I still can't send mail to e-mail adresses that are not in my localhost. If I try to do so (i.e. sending a mail to someone@provider.com), the mail gets redirected to my local mailbox. if I try do to it with a GUI mail client (such as Mail.app), an alert box is displayed, saying that the server refused the connection on port 25. I first tried to open the port 25 via the system preferences and I finally had to disable the whole Jaguar built-in firewall.


Here is the content of my access file :


wanadoo.fr RELAY
192.168.0 RELAY
127.0.0.1 RELAY


and here is what happens when I try to telent my own computer :


telnet 127.0.0.1 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host


So I guess there is a problem with my the port 25. Anyone has any clue how to fix that ?
