New install -- MTA mail needs to be reconfigured
I finally installed my first Debian system earlier this morning and I
am very pleased with it. The install was flawless, but it was not
quite as easy as I thought because there were plenty more
questions AFTER the downloading of packages than I thought.
But all is well. However, as one would expect, there are always a
few issues that come up after a first install. I hope you can help
me with them. These are quite minor. But let me ask just one or
two at a time.
1) All of my devices seem to have been configured correctly,
including my sound and video. That is, the video and sound work
fine. However, I can't find a specific listing of my video card and
sound card. Where precisely are they listed?
2) My first really critical issue has to do with mail. During Install
MTA, I was asked which mail system I wanted. I was advised to
select Smart? (can't remember the second part of the word)
because I have a dynamic DHCP ADSL connection. So I selected
this option but it's clearly wrong because I am told
"Cannot connect to host localhost"
("localhost" is what I chose").
How do I access the mail configuration utility and how do I correct
my settings so I can receive and send mail?
Thank you so much.
