Sorry about the previous post, I see the subject had a typo. So here's

the correct one

Does anyone know how to configure Postfix to use SMTP authentication

on a relay host?

i.e. I have a Linux server, running PostFix on an ADSL line with a

dynamic IP. Thus I can't just send out emails from this server but

need to relay it via our ISP's SMTP server, which is very unreliable.

Now I want to relay the email via another SMTP, running cPanel server

where a user account with the same domain has already been setup, but

I got no idea how to get it to work on SMTP authenticiaion.

Any suggestions?


Kind Regards
