Sending Mail From Archlinux To Gmail (relay)

I did this in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Configure Postfix to send mail from desktop to gmail. I wrote a post here.

Now that I'm using Archlinux, I want the same set up.

I installed postfix.

#pacman -Syu postfix

The config file for postfix is /etc/postfix/master.cf and /etc/postfix/main.cf.
Follow the steps in the link above.
Don't forget to restart postfix. Don't forget to protect the authentication file. Don't forget the postmap command.

Send a test mail.

$echo test | mail -s "test email setup" emailaddr
