Use a local sendmail.
Authored by: signals on Jan 20, '03 01:14:33PM

I had a similar problem. I can't use the SMTP server at work, when I am at home. It claims that I am trying to relay mail and fails, and I don't have a "home" e-mail server. So... I setup a local "sendmail" and pointed at localhost for SMTP. Now, it passes the e-mail to my local sendmail that routes it to each recipient's SMTP server. Now I am not bothered by firewall issues or "I don't relay." messages and I can send mail from anywhere...
