    Problem with Google Apps and our Accounting software

    Moved the school onto google apps, great after I quelled the luddite riot (I'm sure I didn't install any spinning jennys...)

    Of course problems appeared, one of which is our accounting software which uses smtp to send remittances, payslips etc. The smtp settings are basic with no authentication so smtp.google.com is out of the question.

    Question is what can I do ? I've contacted the company and they are looking at it, but no idea if that can be solved - they suggested I leave the Exchange server in place just for 2 users... So I can either buy another domain name and let accounts have their own individual server (they will still be able to mail the users) although I've no idea how the payslips are sent etc. Seriously overkill for 2 users though.

    Or some local smtp server that goes through gmail , But i've no idea if such a thing exists!

    The software in question is oasis by beaver software

    At home I use sendmail on a Linux server to route messages from clients via gmail. It does exist - time to brush up your Linux skills?

    Make a Google Apps account with some kind of generic username e.g. noreply@, install stunnel on something, get stunnel to listen on port 25 and forward to Google's SMTP servers with the noreply@ credentials. Anything that needs to send mail, just point it at your stunnel install on port 25.

    Not sure Stunnel will work, there's no option for username and password in the software...

    I must have mis-remebered and have been using software that can send with a username and password. At home I'm using Exim to send mail through Gmail.
