Build Status

This is the postfix module. Currently it is mostly used to set up the local machine as a relay that forwards all emails to a local smtp server.

Usage:

Forward all wmails to your local friendlt company server:

  class { 'postfix':
    ensure                => 'latest',
    smtp_endpoint_address => "smtp.${::domain}",
    smtp_endpoint_port    => '25',
    smtp_endpoint_user    => undef,
    smtp_endpoint_pass    => undef,
    # make emails appear as sent from this domain
    from_domain           => $::domain,
    # make emails appear as sent from this user
    from_user             => 'donotreply',
    # forward all local emails to this user also
    forward_all_email_to  => undef,
    # remove other mail servers
    remove_other_mta      => true,
    set_alternatives      => true,
  }

Amazon:

  class { 'postfix':
    ensure                => 'latest',
    smtp_endpoint_address => 'email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com',
    # amazon needs tls (this uses puppet certificates)
    use_tls               => true,
    smtp_endpoint_port    => '2587',
  }

Use an user and a password to authenticate to the proper email server:

  class { 'postfix':
    ensure                => 'latest',
    smtp_endpoint_port    => '25',
    smtp_endpoint_user    => 'login_user',
    smtp_endpoint_pass    => 'pass_user',
  }
