Topic: Local mail delivery on remote servers
I'm looking for some help/advice on how to approach my current environment solution.
At the moment I have 4 servers, one is a VM hosting the mail server.
Mail on its own is working fine.
What I'm currently looking at is local mail delivery from all the other remote servers.
Some of the local users sending emails, like root has cronjob details ,...
They should go via my mail server.
Is it just a case of adding a mail account on the mail server, and add an entry on /etc/aliases on each of the boxes?
Another possible problem I'm looking at would be Webserver running on the remote hosts.
I think I can configure PHP for example to use SMTP.
But was wondering if there is a general solution to this, i.e. all mail going through my mail server.
Never had the problem before, as all services were running on the same machine, so sendmail was working as it should.
Now running each service on their own host, looks a little bit different.
Hope anyone could give me some advice on how to best approach this.
Thanks in advance,
