comment Setting up outgoing mail on Ubuntu 10.10
@TiZon Thanks a lot so far! I think its almost ready. I managed to get to the same point using exim and your instructions (tried yours afterwards, after removing exim). If I send a test mail using echo "This is a test." | mail -s Testing someone@somedomain.com, I get the email, but if I use PHP mail function, it return boolean false. Do I need to make changes in some PHP config file too? Or that should be a different question possibly out of scope of serverfault?

@TiZon Thanks! That did it. Any pointers for a simple tutorial for setting things up so that I can send mail. Which one do you suggest out of sendmail and others?

comment DNS resolving error
May be your firewall or something, I can see that fine. I have added 'bankpo.in.' as the hostname and now I believe DNS will take full day to propagate, right? This alone should fix my problem, right? Once the site is up, I can get onto other things you mentioned.

Also the question does have a screenshot for adding the reverse DNS entry. I can just enter the hostname and it will set that as a reverse dns entry.
