smtp address in unix

By williamoshea ·
I have set up moodle and during registration, an email is supposed to be generated to the site administrator. For this the smtp server address is required. I have exchange server for internal communication and for external communication we connect to an ISPs server using pop3 to pick up our mails. Does anyone know what entry i need to enter as SMTP server address in order for user's registration details to be sent to me????

two options:
1) install sendmail and configure it.
then point moodle at the sendmail daemon.

2) point it to your isp smtp server.

You can use your normal SMTP server (check the settings in your Outlook|Tools|Email Accounts|View or Change|Change|smtp info there.

I have Moodle up and running. Thank God for Sourceforge

I would look at using Postfix for your email server before installing
Sendmail. Depending if you have prior Sendmail experience many
of the commands are the same.

You have to let your other email servers know that you are
expecting mail to be routed to your new postfix or sendmail server.
Most vendors have information on how to do this.. With the
different versions of exchange they do things different.
