  Configuring sendmail on Jaguar
Subject:   This is not a fix for OS X Server

Everyone pay attention. This is the error that I get when sendmail attempts to send mail on a BRAND NEW XServe. This was the result of PHP's mail() function, but the UNIX mail command does the same thing.

May 22 13:58:41 servername sendmail[9460]: h4MHwfRo009460: to=someone@domain.tld, ctladdr=admin (501/20), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30037, relay=localhost [], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by localhost

Every other dicussion group references this article as a solution, but IT DOESN'T WORK. I've tried it many times now.

My solution is to install Postfix (www.postfix.org). I just posted this as an FYI to anyone who is running around posting this article in discussion groups.

Once again: this article + mac os x server = sendmail is still broken.

If anyone has actually fixed this problem on their server, post and let us know.
