Sending mail via smtp.gmail.com is failing on my server. I looked on some forums and people were saying to make sure you can telnet to the smtp address first.
When I telnet from my server i input this and get this error:
[root@localhost ~]# telnet smtp.gmail.com 465 telnet: smtp.gmail.com: Temporary failure in name resolution smtp.gmail.com: Host name lookup failure
From my OS X desktop I do the same and get this:
Macintosh-3:~ joe$ telnet smtp.gmail.com 465 Trying 126.96.36.199... Connected to gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com.
I'm running a fedora core 9 server with a firestarter firewall. I have turned off the firewall and the same error persists. I'm also using port forwarding from my router to this server. I have allowed forwarding for port 465 on my router as well.
Can someone please help.
