Background: We have a client with a b PBX which we installed over 4 years ago. They have about 20 users. It is running PBX-in-a-Flash ("PIAF"), an open source PBX that uses FreePBX, Asterisk, Webmin for a web gui for housekeeping, and Sendmail. The underlying distro is Centos 6.5.
I tried sending a test e-mail at the command line, after creating a
little test text file in /tmp/
sendmail [email@example.com] < /tmp/email.txt
The mail is queued, but not sent.
I have also tried the mail command without success.
Also, this version of Centos (6.5 final) has a restricted list of
package sources. I not able to upgrade Sendmail to the latest version. Most of our work is in Debian, not RHEL / Centos, so I could use a hand in upgrading this server, as the sources in this distro of
PBX-in-a-Flash no longer appear to be online. My primary concern with
regard to upgrades is to close security holes, not to add any other
functionality. The PBX system perfectly, other than this issue of not being able to e-mail voicemails.
The e-mail body is the info about the call - duration, time, Caller ID, phone number), with a.WAV attachment of the voicemail itself.) We have this working on other PIAF systems, but not with gmail as the mail transport agent.
1. Fix Sendmail so that it e-mails out voicemails via Sendmail.
2. Fix the sources so that when upgrading, we can upgrade Sendmail to the latest version plus close any security holes.
Time estimate. 1 hr. to review all appropriate settings via a shared desktop session, and find and fix the problem with Sendmail, plus make changes so that updating works.
I am looking for a mix of experience and value
