I am trying to configure ssmtp on our Ubuntu 12.04 server. However I had no luck so far. My ssmtp.conf looks like this:
firstname.lastname@example.org mailhub=mail.server.com:25 rewriteDomain= hostname=hostname.server.com AuthUser=me AuthPass=mypassword UseTLS=YES FromLineOverride=YES
When I try to send mails I get
ssmtp: Cannot open mailhub:25. When I use sudo the error message reads a little different
ssmtp: Cannot open mail.server.com:25
The server should normally accept SMTP on port 25 and I can contact it with telnet
mail.server.com 25. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
