cannot send mails out on linux

hi, i'm new to Rails. just setup an application and every thing looks
fine except: cannot send mails out using "sendmail" setting.

worse: there is no error from ActionMailer - deliver_ never complained
and I got a message of "successful".

however, the recipient never received any email.

any idea what is going on here?

thank you so much!!!

It is a server issue probably/
If your server or develoment machine is Debian/Ubuntu, try sudo apt-
get install postfix

thanks. that is a nice suggestion. i'm using a shared hosting that has
redhat installed. could you help me how to install postfirx there?

really appreciate the quick reply!

If you are using a shared host chances are installing postfix will be
impossible.
But the shared host should have an SMTP service you could use.. maybe
best to ask the host for these details?

can you send out email from a mail client using the smtp service?
