Postfix Mail Relay
- Postfix, running in a simple relay mode
Processes are managed by supervisord, including cronjobs
The container provides a simple proxy relay for environments like Amazon VPC where you may have private servers with no Internet connection
and therefore with no access to external mail relays (e.g. Amazon SES, SendGrid and others). You need to supply the container with your
external mail relay address and credentials. The configuration is tested with Amazon SES.
