[olug] Cox SMTP Relay / Alternitives

I've been using Postfix on servers of mine for years, and haven't looked 
back.  As far as I'm concerned, there is no substitute for running your 
own mail server.

Postfix can relay to GMail just fine, that's not a problem -- unless 
there is a lot of spam getting relayed, in which case GMail is going to 
start throttling your mail.  So, I recommend being selective as to which 
emails get relayed.
