I'm setting up an apache, php, drupal 7 site and need to be able to send e-mails from the site but getting lost trying to find out what I need as far as system packages, php extensions and how to configure them all. I've tried a couple of scripts for php and they report they have succeeded but the test mail never arrives in my inbox.

I suspect that php & drupal are working but I need something in the way of a mail server set up for them to work through.

The Postfix was package was installed as a dependancy of something I installed but the help files seem to me to require a sound understanding of e-mail systems and their jargon which I don't have.

Is there some kind soul out there who has the time and knowledge to help me get this working?
