I am trying to setup postfix (or any other suggestions) as an smtp server for the network.

I am trying to set it up without authentication and to limit it to computers on our internal network of 10.1.1.x

If you need me to post config files just let me know which ones and ill do it.

Thanks for the help

What do you mean by with out authenication? like no passwords to the accounts? then just use a null password or use spaces. and by internal you mean this server wont get email from the outside world right?

Logs to post:

/etc/postfix/main.cf
/etc/postfix/aliases
/etc/postfix/master.cf

If you are a more do it yourself person you can use this site to set it up:  http://postfix.state-of-mind.de/patrick.koetter/smtpauth/postfix_configuration.html

that was quick easy and painless... Thank you (there is an error on that page, but thats not your fault)

For anyone who might look at this later and use that page as reference:

This line:

smptd_client_restriction = permit_mynetworks, reject_unknown_client, permit

should be:

smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, reject_unknown_client, permit
