If you want full features mail relay, you should try below project.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/scrollout/

Personally, I prefer this. It is based on postfix.

Sachin,

As others have mentioned on some of your other recent posts you are repeatedly asking the same question? Without being too critical (as we all go through different learning curves), it seems that you have a complete lack of understanding of the subject concerned (I'm not exactly a Linux Guru but I put in the hours, and hours of research and staring at my screen - I pay my dues like a lot of people here..), and as a result it seems that you are expecting everyone else to do all the work for you - this question you keep asking concerning the setting up of an MTA can easily be found through a quick search on Google, there are many tutorials available complete with sample configs. What groundwork have you done so far yourself....? You are more likely to learn and have a deeper understanding of the subject concerned if you research it yourself and then come back to the forums if / when you hit a brick wall - i.e. error messages, etc. Then you will find a large no. of people willing to help and show off their technical skills.

see: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...on-4175493666/

Regards,

Rawcous.......

This was answered before in your OTHER THREAD:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...on-4175493666/

Did you not understand the answer? You STILL have to read the instructions, and follow them. You were given links to the documentation and two how-to guides, but don't seem to have read them. If you DID, you'd have seen the answer, and not have posted the same question twice.

AMAZINGLY, putting "how to configure postfix to relay mail" into Google pulls up LOTS. Since you've asked the same question about sendmail several times in the past, and postfix (twice now), have you tried looking up an answer?
http://www.postfix.org/BASIC_CONFIGURATION_README.html
http://www.postfix.org/SMTPD_ACCESS_README.html
http://www.postfix.org/STANDARD_CONF...ON_README.html
http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_re...her_mailserver

We are happy to help you, but you do need to show effort of your own. You are essentially asking people here to look up how-to guides for you, or retype parts of them for you.

If you look above your first post of this thread (#1) you will see a clickable Thread Tools menu (with a blue background). Click on that and you will see a number of items appear. Click on the one that says, "Mark thread as solved". The notation "[SOLVED]" will now appear to the left of the thread title.
