Project Description


- Operable CentOS 6.3 server with a fixed IP, not attached to a domain.


- Goal: Configure outbound email, using sendmail, postfix or any other solution.

- Method: Use an external SMTP relay such as gmail, mandrillapp, or other.

- Requirement: The email service need not receive incoming emails. It need not have user mail accounts on the localhost. It only needs to send email messages sent by a software called DSpace (DSpace is a java opensource e-library software - see [url removed, login to view]).

User Acceptance Tests:

1. Successful emails sent and received using the following command:

mail -s Test < /dev/null

2. Successful emails sent and received using the following command:

/usr/local/dspace/bin/dspace test-email

Note: The DSpace software is already installed and running successfully on this machine.


1. A solution which successfully passes the User Acceptance Tests as above.

2. Brief documentation, i.e. a simple text file, which describes the solution.
