    I am running a webserver with a VPS host. Now I plan to send out some automatic emails to various users from this webserver and users will be sending back emails to my website. So I installed postfix SMTP application for sending out emails, and I am planning to use gmail to receive the emails. For now there will be only two email accounts for this website, say [email protected] and [email protected]. Is this arrangement OK. What do I need to tell my webhosting company to change, to accommodate this arrangement. MX record only? Please let me know. :confused:

    Yes, the MX record must point to your server. Then you must set up mailboxes on that server. You can do that manually:

    To forward the mails to your Gmail account, you can use /etc/aliases. After you've modified /etc/aliases, run
    and restart Postfix.
