Based on your logs it looks like git sent the emails to the smtp server
on your local machine. Presumably you don't have that setup to actually
deliver the mail ?

You probably want to tell git to use your company's primary SMTP server
for delivery.

I use a simple wrapper script for git send-mail

  $ cat ~/bin/git-spam

  dohelp() {
         echo "syntax: $0 TO-ADDR REV-LIST"

  if [ -z "$2" ]; then
     exit 1


  git send-email --cover-letter --annotate --to "$TO" --smtp-server=smtp.corp.redhat.com --no-chain-reply-to $REV "$@"

Replace 'smtp.corp.redhat.com' with your own company's SMTP server

Assuming, I'm on a branch and have a series of patches to send, then I use
it as follows

   git-spam libvir-list redhat com master..

If I only want to send one single patch then I would use

  git-spam libvir-list redhat com -1 --no-cover-letter
