Pointing Redmine to existing SMTP server

How do I modify the setting in Redmine to point it to my existing SMTP server and not to Postfix?

I don't have a clue but I'm sure it would be documented by the Redmine team. I imagine that there is a config file or something where that would be set. If you manage to find out, be great if you could share so others in a similar postion will find it easier.

Found it - here's what I did.

Open the Text Editor in WebMin and got to the following file:

/var/www/railsapp/config/email.yml

Here's an example of the configuration I used -

production:
  delivery_method: :smtp
  smtp_settings:
    tls: true
    enable_starttls_auto: true
    address: my.smtp.com
    port: 587
    domain: :mydomain.com
    authentication: :plain
    user_name: user
    password: password
