openbsd misc – basic smtpd question

// Thread started by bofh

Trying to migrate from my 4.4 to 5.1. Thought I’d go with smtpd. Is
this config good? I want all email for my domain to be delivered on
this box, and for this box to send email out.

wan_if = “em0”
lan_if = “fxp0”

listen on lo0
listen on $lan_if
listen on _wan_if

map “aliases” { source db “/etc/mail/aliases.db” }

accept for local alias aliases deliver to mbox
accept for domain “*” deliver to mbox
accept for domain “*” deliver to mbox
accept from relay

I’m also using spamd with default settings as delivered on 5.1, just
uncommenting out the spamd pieces in /etc/pf.conf – there’d be no
impact here right?

    So, accept from all for domain “*” deliver to mbox

    OK, got it!

    Still thinking about what I want to do for this – internal network is
    just my house, wpa2 protected wireless. But thanks for the pointer.

    You probably want smtpd to deliver your outgoing mail via a smarthost
    of your ISP, because some mailservers reject mail from dynamic IP
    ranges or “private” IP ranges.
