Thanks for the great articles - I have mail and send mail working under 10.1.5. Now I am getting ready to move on to Terminals #4.


I tried to send a message using my real address and received a message that a real domain name is required for the sender. I don't have a domain, but I do have a fixed IP. What needs to be fixed?

dennisj@mac.com
(reason: 553 5.5.4 <dennisj@localhost>... Real domain name required for sender address)
