I don't mind learning lots of new stuff (on the contrary I like it) beforehand but all I want to do is figure out how to setup a desktop SMTP server so I can send emails independantly of internet services like gmail etc. I know how to send emails from my web server with PHP but I want to learn how to send them directly off my desktop. Is postfix the tool to use for this? If so do I have to follow this tutorial:
just to send emails or is that overkill?
