Sending Mail with Postfix

im able to install postfix on my ubuntu server. no issues. but ican't send mail.

i dont know what to put for the "relayhost". i've googled this endlessly but i'm clueless. isn't there a general smart host i can use that'll allow me to send?

i dont care for receiving mail. i just want to be able to send mail using the the unix "mail" command. any ideas?

Same as the "outbound server" on your outlook express or Thunderbird account.
