I have installed my webserver from a computer at home. On Ubuntu Server, LAMP, everything works fine except email sending.

First I was getting:

Unable to send email

then I followed these directions.

Then I still got same error. I checked Apache logs and I found

sendmail: fatal: file /etc/postfix/main.cf: parameter myhostname: bad parameter value: myservername.{null}

I changed the file and wrote my website domain like domain.com

At last, Drupal says "Email sent" but I receive no email. What is the problem?


Have you used a devel php input to do a sendmail test? there is a question already answered here. How to programmatically send an email?

Also here is a great article on debugging emails... http://www.drupalcoder.com/blog/how-to-debug-outgoing-mails-in-drupal
