Mail Server Half way to being completely operational!

Well, after quite some time dicking around with exim, i decided to give another mail server program a go…sendmail was outta the question, qmail i tried but was too fiddly…plus just did not work! so last on the list was postfix….i read mixed comments regarding this mail program…but hey, why not give it a go…in addition it has i good webmin config….

spent one weekend on and off installing and tweakin’ the config file…all up the actual config was quick easy and painless, the most problem i had was configuring the firewalls and bloddy telnet to let access to the system….maybe the system is a bit to secure…or unusable…

none theless the mail server is operational and mail can be sent from the user accounts on the server and can be recieved…..only thing to get working now is the pop server and remote mail delivery!!!

Linux….big plans!!!

*did u know u can burn ur knoppix cd onto the hardrive and use it like a real distro….that is so awesome…

*Ultimate Bootbisk 3.0 – excellent live cd….has all the great tools for system rescue and admin, but also has a neat live cd bit call INSERT, which is based on knoppix and used fluxbox as the window manager…very very cool….

* mail server is getting a few steps closer….really need some guidance tho..gotta hit patrick up!!!


well, since my lovely linux boxes work like a dream i spend very little time on them….i guess this is good….i will be however trying to get my email system up and running asap. Got all subdomains up and running, was all very easy…
