Non zero value returned attempting to send mail via command

Fri May 30, 2014 6:09 pm

After setting up SMTP Mail and editing the config file appropriately I receive a message that I cannot send mail due to a returned non zero value.

Any ideas on troubleshooting directions would be most appreciated.

Please post the exact error your receive, and provide some more details about how you're setting up your Pi. If you're using a guide or tutorial, please post the link to it as well.
