Does Linode offer an SMTP relay service?

Linode Staff

I was wondering if you guys have an outgoing SMTP relay we can use as a smart host to get emails sent out from one of our applications.

Linode does not offer an SMTP relay service at this time. However, there are plenty of guides on how to configure an email server on a Linode here.

If you're interested in a SaaS provider and specifically want a relay so you don't have to worry about your own mail server, I can recommend at a personal level that I've used MailGun for transactional emails on their free tier to great success. (<10,000 emails/month)
