Talking SMTP forwarding question


Folks;
Can someone tells me how to route SMTP traffic on my SUSE box through a specific server?
OR How to change the SMTP forwarding information on SUSE server?

I looked at /etc/postfix/main.cf and i couldn't see any thing there.

Thanks in Advance

Do you mean on an IP level or at the smtp level?

Should you need to set this explicitly? If postfix and DNS is configured correctly, your local postfix process should be able to connect to the recipients' mail servers on its own. Or maybe you have something more advanced in mind?

Do you mean to use your ISP mail server to deliver email from your server ?

relayhost
http://www.postfix.org/BASIC_CONFIGU...html#relayhost

Code:
/etc/postfix/main.cf:
   
    relayhost = [mail.isp.tld]    (deliver via provider mailhub)
