Appendum to this ... to do mail relaying for this, there is nothing
specially that has to be installed on your server, it is just a simple
configuration change depending on your MTA ...

For instance, with sendmail, you add a line similar to:

200.46.204.71 RELAY

to your access file

With postfix, you add 200.46.204.71 to your relay_domains entry in main.cf
