I just helped a friend whose server did not send cron mails to his mail server, which is this case led almost to data loss as the backup didn’t work correctly. I looked at the setup and I though I found the problem and correct it, but now I wanted to test it as easily as possible. Therefore I typed following command:
echo "Subject: test" | sendmail -v root
Then I looked if the lokal MTA, in this cache ssmtp delivered the mail to mail server. I though at least I find this line again if I search my blog and maybe it helps someone else too.
