E-MailRelay is a simple SMTP store-and-forward mail transport agent (MTA). It runs as an SMTP server, storing incoming e-mail in a local spool directory, and then forwarding the stored messages to a downstream SMTP server on request. It can also run as a proxy server, forwarding (and optionally pre-processing) incoming e-mail as soon as it is received. It does not do any message routing other than to a local postmaster. Because of its simplicity E-MailRelay is extremely easy to configure, typically requiring only the address of the downstream SMTP server to be put on the commandline.
