Re: Sending a simple mail from debian slug

I am trying to send a simple email to my address with no success. I logged in via ssh and typed:
 echo "This is a test." | mail -s "Test subject" test@gmx.de

It didn't give an error message, but no email was received.

I have searched the net but there's so many tools associated to it (mutt, exim, sendmail, ...) that I am totally confused. I only need to send mails from commandline, no inbox needed.

Any help would be great.


P.S.: I have a NSLU2 with debian as described at cyrius.com.

I'm using that sort of setup for various things. Have you checked for a failure message sent to the root user on that machine, of used mail's -v option? In extremis use Telnet to see what the remote server's saying over SMTP... are you /sure/ test@gmx.de is a good recipient?
