Sendmail outgoing only?
Posted on 2008-06-09
Hi there gurus:
I have a solaris 10 server that doesn't have sendmail enabled as a service - when I installed i understood sendmail to have issues w/ security, so I made sure it's off (if it's even installed, dunno if solaris 10 by default includes it).
My problem is: I now need to be able to send stuff (like alerts, etc) from this solaris box to our MS exchange email server. The Solaris box doesn't need to listen for incoming email as we don't use those capabilities. So basically, all the solaris box needs to do is relay email originating on the box to an exchange email server. I would take sendmail alternatives, as long as they don't hose my system. It's a production environment and wouldn't want to take chances.
