So I have a security cam that will send out an email notification anytime motion is detected. I got this to work with gmail and it will properly send out an email. However, I don't want to use gmail as I would like to write a script that records these messages into a text file which is stored on my network drives so I can view the text report remotely. Therefore I looked into setting up my own smtp server to send out these emails. I have successfully setup postfix to send local emails.
echo "Subject: hello2" | sendmail secadmin@localhost
I can then see these emails in
/var/mail I could then use this file to write the required script.
This is then where I hit a major roadblock. I have no idea how get the smtp server to send out emails from a remote machine. The camera email setup is as such:
How do I find out what to put into these settings? If I was to use gmail this is pretty straight forward however I don't even know where to begin when using postfix. Any help is greatly appreciated.
My only guesses would be:
SMTP server: local address of posfix server (192.168.30.7)
SMTP port: Could I use port 25 if I dont enable SSL/TLS?
Sender Address: secadmin@localhost
passsword: Password for my linux server?
recipient address: secadmin@localhost
