Gmail on Home Linux Box using Postfix and Fetchmail

Setting up Postfix to relay mail to Google's Gmail is an exercise in configuring TLS and SASL. Plus, there is the issue of safely downloading Gmail with a STARTTLS configured Fetchmail; and, if you are using the sslcertck option in your .fetchmailrc (which you should), then, you will need to rehash certificate files.

The above link Gmail on Home Linux Box using Postfix and Fetchmail show you how to do everything - it's a step by step approach with examples, with special notes for Fedora Core users who have Sendmail configured as the default.
