I have some scripts that I use to monitor different operations and I want to get emailed when I have problems. All of my scripts worked on other distros using exim. I have SLED now and used YaST to try to configure the mail server but I am unable to send emails. I can send local mail, but cannot send through an smtp server to reach external email addresses.

I am a little novice to SuSE, but pretty well versed in Linux. What can I do to correct this? Where do I start to look?
