Relay forward all outgoing email
 
I need to make the change to postfix configuration.

In the current network/ firewall configuration I can not send out emails directly from this server.

I need to relay forward all outgoing email messages to an email/spam server.

I added entry to /etc/postfix/transport
* smtp:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

which has the done the trick in the past.

the new server is built with Fedora Core 5 and ISPconfig.

thanks,
Ja

Everything works now! I had made so many changes in the main.cf (ready made a mess). I removed postfix and reinstalled it, Then though the instructions in how to forge for postfix and added this extra line:

postconf -e 'relayhost = smtp.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'

Thanks,
Ja
