Yep, return address is set.
Were you talking about setting up debug on the PSKMail server, or the sendmail server?
I can't debug the sendmail server as it belongs to my ISP!

Thanks for the quick reply Rein.

Have you set the proper return address? Most SMTP servers will refuse to send mail if they don't get a valid one.

If the server is set to debug mail you can see the smtp session in the server 
which should give you the error message of the smtp server.
(we have seen things like 'I can break rules too')

Betreff: [pskmail] Client and server problems!

Hello all,

I'm making some progress on getting VK2ZSZ-1 server up, but am having some problems.

First, a quick note about the client.
When it starts up, it would not talk to FLdigi. As soon as the client started, it asked FLDigi to transmit MULTIPSK-OFF (which it did transmit). After that, the client and FLdigi would no longer talk. I fixed this by commenting out the line "print $socket $pskmailon;" in psk_arq.pl .
Has anyone else seen this?
Latest PSKMail client. FLdigi 3.10 (via Fedora 10 repositories - also tried pre-compiled binaries from the author's web pake).

Now for my server problems. Everything is working (web, POP3, APRS) - except sending emails.
It isn't talking SMTP to my local ISP's sendmail server properly.
I can send emails OK by telnetting into the SMTP server (port 25) and manually forming an email. It doesn't need authentication. Could the problem only be that my mail looks like it is coming from "localhost.localdomain"?
Any idieas? I'm almost there (and still excited about PSKMail!)

Thanks all,
Steve (VK2ZSZ)
