Sending mail from the mac (el capitan)

Found good indications to effectively enable sending mail from the mac! (essential, e.g., fo running moodle and other cms which e.g. use e-mail for confirming registered users).

It is a post published by Anders. I had some problems though: I had to modify the relayhost line. Instead of being:

relayhost=smtp.gmail.com:587

it had to be

relayhost=[smtp.gmail.com]:587

Also, when I do a

sudo postfix reload

I gate an annoying message:

postfix/postfix-script: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running

however, everything works…
