Ok I have installed everything to run a mail server.
so far I am trying to configure fetchmail, so far I'm not getting any luck
whenever there is mail in my inbox on AT&T.
I am using webmin to configure fetchmail, well if there is no mail in my AT&T
account, fetchmail finishes fine, but if there is mail it tells me how many
messages are there but never downloads them and I get an error that says:
fetchmail: getaddrinfo("localhost", "smtp") error: Name or service not known
fetchmail: smtp connect to localhost failed.
fetchmail: SMTP transaction error while fetching from
d.mcglone at firstname.lastname@example.org and delivering to SMTP host localhost.
fetchmail: querying pop.att.yahoo.com (protocol POP3) at wed 24 Oct....... :
fetchmail: Query status=10(smtp)
fetchmail: normal termination, status 10.
A big question I have, what does fetching mail got to do with smtp? I'm trying
to fetch my mail not send it.
