I'm trying to get gen_smtp from:

to send a message to my email, but it just seems to send the text to
the console.

Has anyone used this to send emails?

I start the server then use the gen_smtp_client to send a test
message.  The client works if I use another mail relay, but If I set
the rely to the gen_smtp_server (my machine) it doesn't seem to go
beyond the console, i.e., the output shows on the console, but I'm not
sure if it supposed to send it out to the To: email address also.

Initially I started the server which it defaults to localhost,  I change the default to use my computers IP, but it still
works the same.  Maybe that's what it's supposed to do using the

Any ideas?
