In this tutorial, I setup and Configure Postfix to use Gmail as a Mail Relay with 587 port.

smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
smtp_tls_CAfile = /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
smtp_tls_security_level = encrypt
# Location of CA certificates
smtp_tls_CAfile = /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt
To configure Gmail authentication
vi /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
Add the line as below:
[]:587    [email protected]:password
Running commands as below:
