    Problem sending to remote sites

    Elmo Novice

      Hello,

      I am setting up JBCS 1.04 final for production use. My basic requirement is sending email alerts to remote sites like Yahoo and Hotmail, etc (NOT for spamming). The server is running on Linux Fedora. My DB is MySQL 5.0. In our development, there seems to be no problem. However, when I set it up in production (which is a different site btw), there is no guarantee that the mail arrives. I always get the mail is deferred error, but sometimes it is sent successfully. Most of the time it does not. I am quite a newbie to setting up my own email server, and I don't know which to go. How do I check for the logs? We have setup our DNS, and provided some MX entries. Are we not configuring it correctly, Is it the network or is it something blocking our emails. I would appreciate if somebody can show me the light.

      Another observation. If I send email the first time, it does not arrive. When I successively send emails of the same address, the first ones in the queue seems to get delivered. But I am not sure if this is a conclusive observation since I am only sending to Yahoo. Is there a known bug like this or is it an anti-spamming thing? Thanks

      Regards,

      Elmo
