Would it be possible to send everything through a "relay host" (e.g., mail.domain_using_webhost_listening_on_port_26.com ) and then it would send it to the Internet at large.

But I haven't figured out how to "authenticate" on Postfix -- where do you put in your account name/password to use that SMTP server? I mean, most webhosts require authentication to be able to use their port 25 (to send e-mail) Otherwise spammers could guess the mail server's name and use that.

As you can see, it's possible to use another mail server to do all the sending:

#relayhost = $mydomain
#relayhost = [gateway.my.domain]
#relayhost = [mail.mydomain.com]
#relayhost = uucphost
#relayhost = [an.ip.add.ress]

BUT how do I send it on Port 26, and how do I authenticate with that mail server, since they all require authentication now?

I have an account there, however, so I should be able to use that server. Especially on my Spry account, which is already listening on ports 25 and 26.

Any advice here?

Matthew
