im running debian squeeze virtualmin/webmin vps with postfix in australia

my main email account is through a company in america

i want to be able to send email to my aus vps smtp server, and then have it pass it on to my account at my usa email provider

i want this as its alot quicker

(i tried adding a user to my vps, which lets me send emails, but they are marked as spoofed due to not actually having been sent by the domain that the email address is of)

thankyou

In Postfix, configure the relayhost option:

relayhost = [other.server]

but they are marked as spoofed due to not actually having been sent by the domain that the email address is of

This can be configured in the domain's SPF records.
