I'm in the process of transferring my site to linode from another shared VM.
At my previous provider, they provided an SMTP relay for sending mail from the website.
I don't see any such service at linode … do I need to find a relay elsewhere? What have people here done for this?
I just need to send out probably up to 100 mails a day with an occasional mailout of a few 1000. Hopefully this will grow over time, I don't want to pay too much for it
You can install any number of SMTP servers on any distro, so you may want to start reading up them. The most popular ones are probably Postfix, Exim, and Sendmail.
