Personally i think the "relaying problem" is a good thing and yeah DRAC
is problably the best way go about it.

The only think i don't like about DRAC is that it's RPC/Portmap (bleck!)
but part from that, it's as simple as installing DRAC, changing one line
in Postfix's main configuration file (/etc/postfix/main.cf) and
patch'ing your POP3/IMAP server.
