I need help, i get the following error when i try to send an email.

Error connecting to SMTP Server.

111 : Connection refused


SMTP (sending mail) is very spam sensitive .. last thing you want is to be a open-relay. So an SMTP server needs to be picky on from who it accepts mail. If it refuses mail, blame it on the Server, not on the tool that is connecting to it.


If you are using sendmail, you need to tell it to listen to to ports other than the localhost:

If you are using qmail, and get this error:

"Command not implemented

Server replied: 502 unimplemented (#5.5.1)"

Change SMTP Authentication to 'None' in the config (under SMTP Settings)


Fedora Core 4 runs Apache under SE Linux settings, so it cannot connect to the mail system (SMTP, IMAP, sendmail).

Temporarily disable SE Linux with this: "setenforce 0" and restart Apache.

You can permanently disable SE Linux with the instructions here: http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc3/index.html#id2825880
