comment Possible to configure postfix for authenticated and non-authenticated sending?
Thank you -- this was the missing puzzle piece. It looks like I can generally send email without configuring the SPF record -- so I guess many mail servers fallback to checking the MX is the SPF record is missing.

How then does the receiving email server verify that email From:xxx@example.com is actually from the owner of example.com. If email comes from some IP address and the IP address doesn't match the resolved IP address of example.com's MX record then the email is rejected by the sending server. This is the behavior I see in practice, and it seems reasonable and prevent spoofing the To field of emails.

"To verify that the sending server is an authorized email server, the receiving email server tries to find an MX record that correlates to the sender’s domain. If it cannot find one, it assumes that the email is spam and rejects it." watchguard.com/help/docs/wsm/xtm_11/en-US/…

The final destination is GApps. The postfix server needs to forward mail to the GApps server. Both GApps and the postfix server can send mail from example.com. As a result I think I need to register both servers in the MX record. Although the postfix server is not the desired destination for incoming mail, I believe it needs to be registered in the MX record so that servers it sends mail to can verify that the *@example.com From and ReplyTo header match the senders IP in the MX records for example.com. Its possible to register multiple MX records, correct?

comment Can I administer Amazon RDS instances with, Chef? Salt? Puppet? Ansible?
Its seems there's a split between "pull" based systems (chef, puppet, salt?) that need stuff installed on the managed resource, and "pull" based systems. Ansible is in the later category. Some useful discussion here: serverfault.com/questions/568187/…

Thanks -- looking into Ansible. Have been trying to look into Ansible. Looks like their whitepaper is behind an email firewall and they're not responding... :-(
