Default What to do when you change your relay email settings!

This Tut teaches us how to setup relay. http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_re...her_mailserver


My question is, if we want to change the relay company from say, att to msn, what are the steps required?

Can you just change the relay= ' ' and then change the info in the sasl_passwd file?

thanks,
happz

Change the relayhost setting in your main.cf and adjust /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd. Then run
Code:
postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
/etc/init.d/postfix restart

Default Just curious...

The tutorials on email relay are all pretty old. Just wondering if we should use the tut's for the servers we are building today like the ubuntu 12.10 with ispconfig 3?

Also, because I did follow one of the tut's and restarted postfix, this is what I get:

/usr/sbin/postconf: warning: /etc/postfix/master.cf: unused parameter: smtpd_bind_address=127.0.0.1

It shows 20 to 30 lines of this same messages.

Thanks,
happz

That's just a warning which you can ignore (or you remove the line
Code:
smtpd_bind_address=127.0.0.1
from /etc/postfix/master.cf and restart Postfix).
