qmail: using external relay
 
Hello

I have a server in a data centre. The server runs, among other things, a qmail mailserver.

I need to do some changes to my server and will stopping using my qmail as the SMTP. Instead, I wish to use the relay offered by my data centre.

Is there a control file in qmail which I need to edit to make it use external relay?

Thanks
Hamish

Hi,

Only you need to do is just give your mail server ip address to your data center team to rely all mail to your server. they will add your ip in there server.

Thanks & Regards
