Can anyone tell me how to do a smart-host like configuration now, so my visitors can keep on doing the same thing: send me mail using a web form on my site?
Take a look at the Smart Host section on http://www.fredshack.com/docs/postfix.html
My ISP is 1&1 in Germany and they have strange habits. For example, I cannot get a PHP mail form script working. This is what 1&1 says about it: The only FormMail script you can use on the 1&1 servers is the NMS FormMail.pl. This can be downloaded from http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/scripts.shtml. (See: http://faq.1and1.com/scripting_langu...ned/index.html. As a matter of fact, FormMail.pl works with Sendmail, not Postfix.
Nevertheless, on Fedora Core 6 I did get form mail working with a perl script that addresses Sendmail. The script was written by Kristina Pfaff-Harris and it can be found here: http://tesol.net/scripts/AutoCGIMail/.
For the Perfect Etch Setup on my Debian machine I installed Postfix instead of Sendmail. Kristina does not offer her script for Postfix.
My question: can anyone recommend a good Postfix mail form script?
Postfix is compatible to Sendmail, so I don't know why it shouldn't work with Postfix. Postfix even comes with a binary called sendmail to guarantee Sendmail compatibility.
