It seems that mail on my server is functional -- kind of. I have a simple PHP mailer script that is capable of mailing any email address that is not local. e.g email@example.com
However, if I try firstname.lastname@example.org, it tells me
/home/myuser/dead.letter... Saved message in /home/myuser/dead.letter
You have new mail.
What does this mean? Does anyone know what I can do to make my emails actually go through?
I'm using google apps for domains -- so basically gmail is hosting my domain's email and I'm not using my own servers for receiving mail. I've set up the nameservers correctly -- I wonder if it's got to do with my sending configuration (what does PHP's mail function normally send with anyway, sendmail?) or maybe it's my receiving configuration -- maybe something makes it act differently for "local" mail
