Postfix and GMail as Relayhost Woes
It has been a while since I have posted on here but I could do with some help as I am currently bashing my head against a desk trying to sort this out.
I have setup Nagios and RT on a Ubuntu 10.10 server and they are running quite nicely. However, the one (important) component I am missing is email integration so that the applications can send out e-mail alerts. This however, is totally new to me.
Annoyingly, our e-mail is currently hosted by RM (Easymail) so I need to set this up to work with either GMail or Easymail as a relayhost.
I have followed quite a few examples and tutorials on the web, but I have not managed to get any of them to work. Because I was unsure as to what configuration steps were failing, I have even tried using SSMTP to send a mail but even then I always get the error Cannot open smtp.gmail.com:587 Is this because I am behind the lancsngfl proxy or is the problem totally unrelated?
I could do with some help really on this as it would be great to get it working.
Thanks in advance,
