Hi Team,

I would like to install an email replay software in one of my servers where I can configure a primary smtp server use for sending emails, at the same time, allow my internal server to relay messages off this application to the smtp server configured. Is this possible, any free application out there?

Thank you

Not Entirely sure I am reading your correctly, but almost any mailserver can allow local users to send mail AND allow authorized external IPs to relay mail outbound.

There are plenty of free MTAs - I prefer Exim, but that's mostly just personal preference.

If you can go into more detail on what you are trying to achieve?

Hi, Well what I want to do is that I have a few devices in my house, such as dvr and network cameras. Instead of configuring the SMTP email settings pointing to my providers SMTP on each device to send me notifications, I would like the smtp server settings on the devices to point to an internal computer in my house and then configure my external SMTP settings in the relay software to send those messages out. Kind of like a router.

Thank you.

Yes, that's a classic smtp relay -there are lots, ranging from something fairly low end like hamster ( http://www.elbiah.de/hamster/ ) though mercury (a formerly full featured windows mailserver now free for home use - http://community.pmail.com/pmail/MercuryOverview.aspx ) to the bigger commercial offerings. Exim is a linux based mailserver that is very full featured, but to run it on windows requires cygwin (http://www.cygwin.org/cygwin/ ) so the learning curve there may be a bit heavy for a hobby setup.

Go with hamster or mercury (or try both!) and see what you think :)
