>> First it depends on the mail software you want to use. I on my own prefer postfix. And then the appropriate documentation / mailing list should be sufficient to set it up. Main idea is, that all nodes are send-only machine and use the headnode of the cluster (sometimes this is called a null-client) to relay the email to the final destination.

(the above one) Are emails relayed to the headnode and received by the users thereon (i.e. don't use -M, as the default should work in such a setup)?
