Try to install mailx
apt-get install mailx
You can also telnet to localhost on port 25 and send an email by hand.
telnet localhost 25
It should then greet you.
Then you type:
helo localhost
mail from:daniel.dalton at gmail47.com
rcpt:yourothermailaddress at some.domain.com
subject: testing mail
Some more sentences if you want, end with a dot on
a line on its own.
then exit or quit, can't remember now.
Replace the email addresses in my telnet example with real ones.
hth, Willem
