How to configure Sendmail inside a docker container

0 votes

I have a Docker container running PHP and Apache AWS instance which has the docker instance running. I am not able to send an email from the docker terminal. Is there any way to send an email from docker instance using Sendmail which uses the docker's host's configuration?. 

I am not sure what the error is.

Maybe Sendmail or any other mail service for that matter is installed in your Dockerfile The host, however, apparently does have Sendmail available. The "best" or most Docker-like solution is to spin up another container that runs an MTA and configure your application to use that.
