i recently installed red hat linux 8.0. i have two user accounts in my system namely "anand" and "raghu". when i tried to send a mail from raghu to anand using the mail command i did not see mail being recieved by anand. I have not done anything like configuration for mailing before i did this.
I tried opening the log file for the mail through root account.
It shows following status for the a sample mail which i sent from "raghu" account to "anand" account at 10:21 AM.
Nov 26 10:21:00 localhost sendmail hAQFL0KG001559 : to=anand(500/100) , delay=00:00:00 xdelay=00:00:00 mailer=relay , pri=30238 , relay=localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0 stat=deffered : connection refused by localhost.localdomain
Do i have to do any configuration for mail service in linux before i use it.if so give steps as to what to do?
