playing around with installing exim4 for mutt 1.5, I am unable to find
out how to rectify this problem:
exim4 -v abc@def
the output includes the error message:
SMTP<< 501 5.0.0 EHLO requires domain address
in /etc/hostname I have tried various addresses including localhost and
the exim4 config mentions EHLO once - uncommented the script, no effect
Where do I make the change/add a domain address to please HELO/EHLO?
A few possibilities, but try putting this in your exim4 configuration:
primary_hostname = your.fully.qualified.domain.name
Many thanks Monique and Paul
No success though. I need to put a fully qualified domain name in
exim4.conf, but for the life of me I cannot see where. Tried as
suggested, and it laughed at me!
As an aside, the problems really started with a Sarge upgrade a while
ago, following which my clock time was not updated ... I left it to deal
with later, as I reasoned it was a simple configuration error of very
little importance. Any thoughts as to cause?
You mentioned further possibilities ... what are they?
