    Exclamation Sending SMTP Email via Ethernet Request

    Hello Everyone,

    I am practicing using embedded systems. I would like to send an alarm email using some sample code on the MCu.

    The problem is the functionality of these libraries (the code) is a bit old and does not clearly spell out how to handle the SMTP TLS security issue.

    As a work around, I would like to set up my Ubuntu 11.04 box which has Thunderbird configured as an email client (Thunderbird can easily send emails to my Gmail account).

    Is there a command or utility which will allow the micro controller via my LAN to send an email message from my Ubuntu machine? For example, my SMTP_SERVER=my_ubuntu_machine_ip and SEND_EMAIL=function_ubuntu_email().

    I guess my Ubuntu box would be my proxy (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    I don't even know if this even possible.

    Thanks for any help.
