Hi Brian,

Thanks for the suggestion.  I checked and it all looks Ok.

Also, I use the same config for 120+ solaris boxen and they don't have any problems emailing - so, for some reason it's RH specific.

Hi All,

I've got one config file (cfagent.conf) w/ the 'sysadm', 'EmailFrom',
'EmailMaxLines', and 'smtpserver' all defined.  Yet I receive no email output.

I've done a 'cfagent -d2' and looked through the output.  The var is being
expanded/defined but that's about it.  There's no attempt to contact the smtp
server even thought I've got 'inform=true' defined in various areas of the conf

I had a similar problem.

I had
EmailFrom = ( cfengine )

I went to a mail server that would have relayed one of the messages and
found that the relay server wasn't permitting a relay based on the
emailfrom.  In my case I had to be specific and put
EmailFrom = ( address@hidden )

The nice thing is even though it would seem that the messages would come
as address@hidden, they actually come as address@hidden

I then got a lot of messages thereafter.   Something to check for at any
