I was really hoping people would follow the link I posted, where all is
explained, and where four examples of that genre are detailed.
A nullmailer is a stripped-down, deliberately simple MTA capable only of
(1) simulating the traditional sendmail command-line interface for
accepting outbound mail, and (2) relaying all such mail to a specified
Many Linux boxen don't actually need more of an MTA than that. In such
cases, you'll improve system security and reduce complexity by sticking
to a nullmailer rather than use a full-featured MTA.
Cheers, "Don't use Outlook. Outlook is really just a security
Rick Moen hole with a small e-mail client attached to it."
