I've installed ssmtp and then edited the ssmtp.conf file so could try sending a mail but says cannot open mail:25 however in the conf file I set it to gmail port 467 and I am pretty sure everything else is right.
What specifically do I need to look for with this error or could it be any number of settings in and outside of the configuration file?
# /etc/ssmtp.conf -- a config file for sSMTP sendmail.
# See the ssmtp.conf(5) man page for a more verbose explanation of the
# available options.
# The person who gets all mail for userids < 500
# Make this empty to disable rewriting.
# The place where the mail goes. The actual machine name is required
# no MX records are consulted. Commonly mailhosts are named mail.domain.com
# The example will fit if you are in domain.com and your mailhub is so named.
# Example for SMTP port number 2525
# Example for SMTP port number 25 (Standard/RFC)
# Example for SSL encrypted connection
# Where will the mail seem to come from?
# The full hostname
# Set this to never rewrite the "From:" line (unless not given) and to
# use that address in the "from line" of the envelope.
# Use SSL/TLS to send secure messages to server.
# Use SSL/TLS certificate to authenticate against smtp host.
# Use this RSA certificate.
# Get enhanced (*really* enhanced) debugging information in the logs
# If you want to have debugging of the config file parsing, move this option
# to the top of the config file and uncomment
Interestingly all the files in
/etc/pki/tls/certs/ are the exact same ones I deleted in my /etc/ssl folder! haha Now I know a certain amount of business happened when creating an untrusted cert.
