small doubt
How can one set a default smtp for sending log files from a server.
Suppose in my network i have a
I have a production server on which sendmail is not installed. I would like to send log files from the production machine to my mail client on a third machine.

where can I set the smtp settings?

If these servers are on the same network, why must the logs be "sent" as email?

Why not setup a syslog server and have that as the server that can send emails for alerts? Or there is always the possibility of setting up a monitoring server that actually sends alerts, ex: Nagios, OpenNMS, Zenoss, which all are open source and can be customized. Sounds like a more ideal setup to monitor application failure instead of log files being sent to an email address.

I am aware of Nagios, Groundwork, etc kind of tools..but my intention is for a standalone machine..I want to optimise the machine in all extra load of monitoring tools..I am sorry if one feels I am arguing..

Is there really a way to setup that (fetchmail is for recieving .. something shud be available for sending also..cos pop server is always not available on all machines)

cos in windows I have setup bmail and mpack as mail senders

So why not get permission and install sendmail on the server?

I am a fully privileged employee in the organisation, I am aware of all above said suggestions.. If some one can provide me a solution at a minimal level I will be happy..I mentioned earlier that I donot want to put more load on server..fully optimised only for application.. I cannot spare atleast 1 MB of additional memory or CPU utilisation , HDD I/O etc for third party applications. This is ageneral doubt.. Does a solution exist?
