Hi everyone, I have what I hope is a rather simple question. I'm not very familiar with this area of system administration, so hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction. I just got myself a FreeBSD VPS to host a few of my websites. I need the processes on the server (PHP, for example) to be able to send e-mail via /usr/sbin/sendmail. The thing is that I don't actually want to run a mail server. My vps is severely limited on disk space, and any mail I get I'll forward to my gmail account anyway. I can obviously configure sendmail or postfix to do this for me, but this seems a bit excessive for what I'm trying to do. The mail load will be very light, and I'd prefer to conserve disk space. Is there a port, perhaps, that will simply forward all mail transmitted to /usr/sbin/sendmail to the destination SMTP server? The only other thing it has to be able to do is use the aliases file to determine the real e-mail of root, for example.
Like I said, I'm not too familiar with setting up mail servers, so if this makes no sense to you please suggest an alternative. Just to recap, I don't need local mail storage and I don't need the server to accept mail from anything other than the local processes running on the server. Just need it to read the destination e-mail address (or get it via aliases), connect to the MX server for that domain, and transmit the message. If there isn't any simple daemon that will do this, can you recommend either how to configure sendmail or something like postfix to do this? The idea is to minimize resource usage (disk space, memory, cpu time).
