Hi All,

I am trying to send a mail from my application through SMTP in solaris 9 but unable to send a mail.Same code is able to send mail in Windows.

As unix has more security,So as per me,it is due to security reason..

So please let me know what I need to do to send a mail properly.

Thanks in advance..

if you are having the problem on linux too, then send us errors from the linux machine. Otherwise, please post in the Solaris forum.
