Cannot receive account setup email notification

Postby blueberry » Sat May 13, 2017 3:15 pm

hi, i tried to create a few accounts in Vestacp, but couldn't receive any email notification. I created a php web form, but did not receive any email via php sendmail function as well. In fact, the VestaCP installation, i did not receive the initial email as well.

Setup is using Dynamic DNS, Portforwarding all configured (Eg. Port 25, 21, 22... FTP, SSH all working).

I tried to install sendmail function, but still did not work. Can anyone advice?

sudo nano /etc/mail/local-host-names
domain-name.com
machine_name.domain-name.com

sudo nano /etc/hostname
127.0.0.1 localhost
192.168.0.X machine_name.domain-name.com machine_name

192.168.0.X is the internal LAN fixed IP address of the machine.

set sendmail_path in php.ini
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -f email@domain-name.com

I could not find where to change this email address: ubuntu_username@machine_name . Is this the cause?

Ubuntu 16.04.

Exim4 not working for me, grey out in the Vestacp control panel, can't start as well, hence wanted to see if sendmail works as an alternative.

Tried again, purge sendmail, re-install exim4. Now exim4 finally shows up activated in VestaCP, however, am still unable to receive email notifications on new account/ new database creation. PHP forms to emails are not working as well. Any clue or advice? Would greatly appreciate.

I'm happy to inform that after hours of read-ups and testings, i managed to get Exim4 working again. Ran dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config and email notification finally works now!
