Intel Rapid Storage Technology alerts to Google Apps account

Problem: Intel Rapid Storage Technology allows for system warning and error alerts to be sent to an email address (or several if you want). In the mail settings it does allow for the port to be set, but there aren’t any authentication options.

Solution: Contrary to my previous beliefs, Google DOES seem to allow you to send unauthenticated on port 25 as long as it’s addressed to an address in your own domain. So I set:

  • FROM address to ‘’
  • TO address to ‘’
  • Port to ’25’
  • Host to
    • And it works.. now I don’t get this.. surely it’s an open relay then? Comments?
