I'm trying to finish up my Nagios install by having it email me. It was emailing me using /bin/mail so it always got sent to my spam folders. I installed sSMTP to try to send a request to my work's email server to be able to send out a message from an authenticated user.
Here is my /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf file:
mailhub=10.200.120.148:25 UseTLS=NO AuthUser= email@example.com AuthPass=PASSWORD
So far I've been using the following command, and it will still arrive to my email inbox as root@localhost which causes it to go to my spam folder (with the exception of one email provider I have).
cat message |ssmtp firstname.lastname@example.org
I've looked at a few examples online, and they all seem to have pretty much the same as me. Does anybody see the any mistakes that I'm making?
Just to clarify, email@example.com is a user on the mail server that my work uses.
