Relaying mail from

Posted on: 2009-08-01 12:24:57+00:00

One of the more common issues committers face at Apache is in trying to send mail from their account.  We've just made that process a whole lot easier by setting up an SSL-enabled, smtp-auth based mail submission service on port 465; which is compatible with gmail's recently announced feature to allow outbound mail from your address to be directed to, instead of to a gmail server, for delivery.  Say goodbye to all the ezmlm moderation battles: your SMTP envelope sender will now match your From header!

In the future we may wish to tighten up the SPF records for, so please take advantage of this new service for all outbound delivery of your personal email.
