Forum server doesn't send out mails
« on: March 23, 2014, 03:39:43 pm »

Hi wesleyh and damelon,

seems like your digital ocean droplet is not sending out mails, e.g. can't reset password as I don't receive a mail.

is sendmail working correctly?

I had an issue like this in the past and I resolved it as follows:
Quote
/var/log/mail.log said: "My unqualified host name (localhost) unknown; sleeping for retry. This is because sendmail requires "hostname" to be a fully qualified domain name."

updated "/etc/hosts" file: nano /etc/hosts
to:  127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost yourhostname

I noticed this as well when I just tried to reset my password to see if this function worked,  as soon as I get shell access Ill fix this as well as get SSL working
