Introduction

A lot of my linux systems are configured to send e-mail notifications. This reference is a quick guide on how to setup both the SSMTP MTA and the mailx MUA.

Installing & Configuring SSMTP

First emerge SSMTP:
  # emerge ssmtp
Edit the config file
  # vi /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf
  root=mail@example.com
  mailhub=mail.example.com:2525
  AuthUser=mail@example.com
  AuthPass=P4ssw0rd

Installing & Configuring mailx

First install the mailx MUA:
  # emerge mailx
Done
