I am using ubuntu server version 11.01

and I use sendmail to deliver email.

I cannot received the email send from the server to Google services, which they are in the same domain name.

part of the sendmail log: relay=mail.google.com, dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection timed out with mail.google.com

Firstly, Gmail accepts mail on smtp.google.com:587. It seems you are using mail.google.com:25, try changing this configuration first.

If it still doesn't work, Google specific relay setup can be found at http://www.phinesolutions.com/sendmail-gmail-smtp-relay-howto.html

Good luck!
