I am trying to configure my outbound email server, but it continually fails. I have tried configuring to multiple accounts, but always get the following error when I test the connection:

Connection Test Failed!

Here is what we got instead: -2 Name or service not known

I am running on a Linux system, locally hosted.

Any ideas?
