Using external smtp server from hosting provider

I have purchased an email host account from an external email provider, is there a way that i can use email providers smtp settings and mail id and password to send emails from my virtual min hosting.

I tried from Webmin -> Servers -> postfix mail server ->general settings but i dont know where to put my email id and password for the smtp provider.

What you're looking for is "relayhost" settings.

The specifics will depend on your provider, but this is a pretty good doc about using Sendgrid:

It includes the relayhost configuration, as well as examples of setting up SASL authentication and a password map file (be sure it's not readable by world). Some of those options are in the GUI, but you'll have to hit the command line for some of this stuff, as I don't think the Webmin module has password map editing, among other things.


Check out the forum guidelines!
