Using CentOS 5.6 and trying to send (only) emails to remote boxes. I am on a CentOS client box and trying to send email to my road-runner email account.

mailx -s "Some Subject" < msg.txt

$cat message.txt
From: localhost.localdomain
Subject: Test

Log file shows:

  1. How do I use my Road-Runner email server to route my email to an external email box?
  2. Does anybody know if I must use user/password on the Road-Runner /Mail Server?

Are you able to at least get email into your system mail account? – Rilindo Oct 3 '11 at 19:36

From the log message that you posted it seems that you are running the MSP agent, but not the MTA, or the MTA is not listening on port 25. You may have to also post the /etc/mail/ and /etc/mail/ files.
