I have cobbled together a small script that emails my username when an SSH connection is made by one of the people who I have given access too (Script listed below). The script works great, but I'd like to have it email a non local email address rather than just the local user.

I did some reading and according to the articles I found made the following changes. The email just still just sits in mailq. Any help getting this working would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

1) Added these lines to
/etc/postfix/main.cf
--------------
Code:
relayhost = smtpserver.com:587
smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
smtp_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
smtp_tls_CAfile = /etc/postfix/cacert.pem
smtp_use_tls = yes
--------------
*smtpserver.com is a the smtp server for the hosting company where I have my domain hosted.

2) Added this line to
/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
--------------
smtpserver.com:587 myemail@address.com : password
--------------


3) I then ran
--------------
postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
--------------

4) Then:
--------------
cat /etc/ssl/certs/Thawte_Premium_Server_CA.pem | tee -a /etc/postfix/cacert.pem
--------------


5) Finally, I restarted postfix:
--------------
/etc/init.d/postfix reload
--------------



The email script is as follows and resides in
/etc/ssh/sshrc;
--------------
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# send email when any ssh login is successful
## set IP variable
ip=`echo $SSH_CONNECTION | cut -d " " -f 1`

# email subject
SUBJECT="SSH login just occurred."

# Email To ?
EMAIL="user@host"

# Email text/message
EMAILMESSAGE="/tmp/emailmessage.txt"
echo "  -- Alert -- "> $EMAILMESSAGE
echo "SSH Login was successful">> $EMAILMESSAGE
echo "User $USER just logged in from $ip">> $EMAILMESSAGE
echo `date`>> $EMAILMESSAGE
echo "  -- End alert --" >>$EMAILMESSAGE
# send an email using /bin/mail
/bin/mail -s "$SUBJECT" "$EMAIL" < $EMAILMESSAGE
# clear contents of tmp file
echo "Blank File"> $EMAILMESSAGE
--------------
Thread now reopened!
