BASE email alerts not sending (Fedora 14)

    Hi all,

    I am having trouble getting the email alerts in BASE to send. When I try to send an alert from base I get the following error:

    Failed to connect to ESAN0001.millinfo.local:25
    EXPORT ERROR: Could not send exported alerts to 'rino655@gmail.com'. Check the mail configuration in PHP.
    No alerts were selected or the Email alert(s) (csv) was not successful

    I have made sure that all the appropriate pear packages were installed, I have the following:

    Installed packages, channel pear.php.net:

    My config file for base_conf looks like:

    $action_email_smtp_host = 'ESAN0001.millinfo.local';
         $action_email_smtp_localhost = 'localhost';
         $action_email_smtp_auth = 1;
         $action_email_smtp_user = 'rdpettigrew@millinfo.com';
         $action_email_smtp_pw = 'password';
         $action_email_from = 'rdpettigrew@millinfo.com';
         $action_email_subject = 'BASE Incident Report';
         $action_email_msg = '';
         $action_email_mode = 0;

    I also have firewalls turned off. I'm not sure what to do to fix the issue, can anyone help?
