Setup an MTA to pass mail onto an external ISP/mail provider
I have a Fedora 10 machine that I want to setup to send email. However I don't want it to be a full blown SMTP setup.
What I am looking to achieve is when something sends email from the local machine (e.g. from cron) to an address I want it to use an MTA on the local machine which will then connect to, and authenticate with, my e-mail providers SMTP server this will then take care of actually sending the e-mail.
I don't want, or need, to setup a full blown SMTP service (i.e. only the local machine should be able to use it) so sendmail seems a bit over the top for my needs. Nor do I want to mess about with MX records (am I right in thinking this will mean I have to manage all mail for my domain?).
I've looked through the forum but I haven't managed to find the right combination of terms so far...
Any pointers/suggestions most welcome!
