That has nothing to do with how the mail text will be handed over to mail. Seems your mail transfer agent (MTA) is not set up properly (postfix? sendmail? ...?). Make sure you can send mails outside - the command for sending mail seems to have no errors in it.

Lookup sendmail or postfix configuration in google.

Most linux have sendmail installed by default. I believe you will need a domain in order for it to send out properly or a server to relay for you.
