I'm setting up watchdog to monitor my RPi temperature. I would like to have e-mail messages sent out using alias forwarding. But how do I configure the smarthost on Raspbian/xbian?

  • Is it different to doing it on any other distro? – Jivings Jan 27 '13 at 10:33

I found the answer. I'm not sure about Raspbian but xbian version 1.0a4 doesn't have the mail utility installed. I first installed the mail utility as follows:

sudo apt-get install mailutils

Then I ran this command:

dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config

I selected "mail sent by smarthost; no local mail" and configured the SMTP server of my ISP.
