    Default sendEmail + sendmail trouble

    Hi guys

    Ive been having a look at the sendEmail prog and am trying to spoof a few emails.

    I have seen this working in PureHates old video about the adobe exploit, where he used a spoofed mail from adobe.

    I have tried sendEmail and get the following error.

    ERROR => Connection attempt to localhost:25 failed
    IO::Socket::INET: connect: Connection refused

    I have looked around here and the web and some people say you have to start the SMTP server in Backtrack... So i try the following command.

    sendmail start

    and it just hangs not doing anything and i have to ctrl + c to get out of it..

    any help or a punt in the right direction would be appreciated guys..

    nice one

    First of all,

    May I suggest that you head over to the new Backtrack forums @

    BackTrack Forums


    Secondly, would suggest that you post the commands you have used, possibly the smtp server was not correct ?

    Basic command ;
    sendEmail -f "<Name> name@name.com" -t target@target.com -u "Subject" -m "email body here" -s smtp.server.here
    You can either use the smtp server from your ISP of the network connection you are on, or you can use the smtp server of Gmail.

    The only drawback of using gmail smtp server is that the recipient will see your gmail address..

    thanks for the reply.

    I think it ws down to the fact i never entered an smtp server..

    But in the PureHate adobe exploit video, in his command he never enetered an smtp server and it seemed to be working for him..

    thanks anyway

    So it's not really anonymous. Because you see the gmail account.
    How do I send an email to jack@hotmail.com from tony@hotmail.com?
    Could I set up my own smtp server? And how do I do that? Has somebody information for this? Thanks in advance.

    At melf..

    You seriously need to search and research a bit on your own pal..

    Right two posts above yours is the simplest way to be able to send an email from "jack@hotmail.com" to "tony@hotmail.com"

    You only see the gmail account if you use gmail's smtp, if you use your own ISPs smtp, then you will see the IP information in the headers (X-source IP) as well as information that could lead you to the provider.

    Have you even tried it ?!

    There is only one reason to do such crap and that would be illegal.
