CSF/LFD email without mail server, using 3rd party SMTP to send how?

Posted July 18, 2015 4.7k views


I have just install CSF on Ubuntu 14.10 x32, on my droplet.

I would like to send all CSF/LFD emails via a 3rd party SMTP server, as I don’t believe I have a email server installed, unless it was a part of Ubuntu 14.10 x32.

How would I do this, without installing a mail server?
I have looked at the csf.conf and couldn’t see away.

I have sorted this, by installing sSMTP and setting it up to use Gmail SMTP.
