I've got SSMTP on a linux server for sending outgoing mail via gmail.

But I've got a couple of useless windows programs (UPS) that are expecting a port 25 SMTP server to post to.  One of them is currently working with xtra, the other I can't get to go.

So I thought if I ran a local smtp server on my linux, to then forward to the external email addresses for my UPS management.

Can someone let me know a simple SMTP server that I could do this with?  The SMTP server does not  need external access.  If I can't forward, then I script a log reader to email the received email if I have to.

But if someone knows how to get the forwarding working that would help also.

I'm not adverse changing mail product, but simple is best.  the only thing this machine currently emails is when package updates etc are ready and the state of the odd job.

I think SSMTP can be configured to do what you want, otherwise heaps of options on linux: sendmail exim, postfix, nullmailer, msmtp, esmtp.

Should be able to fine lots of tutorials online showing how to configure a MTA on a linux.

As far as I can tell SSMTP is just a sender of mail.

It doesn't seem to become an SMTP server. Hence my question, ie what package that is relatively simple for an SMTP server.

What distro are you using? Most of them will install Sendmail by default.

Sendmail and Postfix are probably the most common. For local relaying they will both work with out of box configs. Postfix would be my choice.

Ahh did it. Postfix wasn't so scary.

So now my little linux machine receives email from the two windows servers and forwards them to me via gmail.

Doesn't seem to relay to any other addresses, but at least I'm now off the xtra email servers for smtp.
