SMTP Relay For Your Lab (Using Gmail)

In my home lab, I have several applications that send email.  Most of them run on linux (CentOS or Ubuntu).

I found the following directions to setup Postfix.  I started doing this on every box and realized I was being dumb.  I just need to setup one relay server.  I thought about setting up a services box for this and other functions but found a distro that does everything I wanted.

I installed Zentyal and configured the mail server to relay mail through my Gmail account.  Then just point all my other applications/servers at this internal relay.  Problem solved.  Now on to getting everything to authenticate through ldap, etc.



  1. Nowadays we all are dealing with a data conversion and at first this process can seem really difficult and even almost impossible. I’ve read a bunch of instructions how to do it, but there was no use till I found source export Thunderbird to Outlook PST. It’s a perfect solution, because you will not need any additional tools or utilities to do an intermediate data conversion or unload messages from an mailbox file. This tool has all the necessary features under one umbrella and enables users to move email archives of any size directly from Thunderbird to Outlook or a standalone PST storage file.
