Thank you, it still did not connect using that. The mail server is a SMTP server. Also I copied over my host's resolve.conf file.
With all these hassles/headaches, would it be better/more secure for me to settup Bochs or QEmu running a virtual BSD server? Thanks, -Jim Stapleton On 2/23/07, Jonathan Chen <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

If you want to check connectivity from within the jail to out, you could always "telnet mail-server-ip 25". To check connectivity in, you could try enabling the jail's sendmail server...
