    I am beginner in Linux and Networks. My question is very weird I know, but I could not find answers on internet.

    Okay, so I want to send e-mail from my laptop to my gmail account. I am using Postfix client to send an email but it's not working.

    I am not hosting any website or server. I am simply connecting to the wi-fi network of my university. What should be my domain name then? (currently, domainname returns


    I went to and used host command

    host <myip> domain name pointer

    so, my FQDN is ???

    I'm getting more and more confused as I come across new page on the internet.

    Please help me out.

    Postfix is no mail client but an MTA and I'm not really sure what you're trying to do.
