Thanks very much for your reply. I've spent the afternoon trying to install mailutils and postfix and other mail packages but the install hangs.
Doesn't your existing ISP/email provider have a POP3/IMAP server for inbound email and an SMTP server for outbound email. Take a look at their website.
If I understand your question correctly, fetchmail might do what you want. It will pull mail from a pop or imap server and drop it into a local mailbox on your pi.dermotx wrote: ↑Fri Mar 20, 2020 2:02 amThanks for reply but I just can't manage this email stuff between the problems I have to overcome with my ISP, Google domains etc. Does anyone know of a contact form that just captures the form data and leaves it somewhere on the server where I could access it and do away with the need for the server to email it to me?
I referenced the Mac page because the Windows page had zero information.dermotx wrote: ↑Fri Mar 20, 2020 5:57 pmHi Dougie. Thanks for that. I'd still like to avoid going the email route for the reasons outlined previously. My email account is with Gmail and I'm not sure why you referenced Mac Mail. Was it so I could get the mail server information?
I've already tried to send a simple email from the command line but I can't get even something as simple as that to work.
I'm pretty sure that the problem is that google domains and/or virginmedia prevent the execution of php scripts, hence why I want to avoid emailing the form content if possible.
Regards and Thanks.
