First of all I’d like to say that I’m a complete newbie on Linux-related items. My 30-years old experience as a wintel administrator was much needed when installing Nagios
I’ve got the package up and running on an Ubuntu 8.04.1 desktop version. Everything seems to work, with one exception: sending mails
I know the manual indicates I have to install mailx, but refers to the community with help on how to install and configure it.
I have been reading several forums, hoping to find some step-by-step help, without luck.
So this forum is sort of my last resort: can anyone point me in the right direction on how to configure mail or mailx (or any other command line capabale mail sending program that works with nagios) so it sends all mails to our local SMTP server (Exchange 2003)???
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as we definitly want to use this program, it is by far the most complete piece of monitoring software we have tested during the past months…
Thanks in advance,
