I'm just delving into the topic of server-side programming, and I'm trying to use Sendmail to... well... send mail
I am sooooo confused! I really don't know where to start....
I've used mail() with PHP (without doing any sendmail configuration) and I a message was successfully sent (from firstname.lastname@example.org
lhost, appearantly my default or something....). But I don't know anything about the process.
I've read the sendmail man file, but I'm still confounded beyond belief. Can someone help me understand how to configure sendmail for my needs?
I currently am self hosting, from an apache server on my mac. I've got nothing but an IP address. My computer (thus, my server) is not always on. How can I set up an account such as "email@example.com"? Can I configure sendmail to use my gmail account?
Yes, I'm a sendmail noob
. I'd GREATLY appreciate any help.
