OK one thing I keep messing up is a mail server....

Ive screwed it up so many times now I have a mental block...

 

I used to have my own mail server running under SME-server and the world was good. Then I moved my DNS/NFS/WEB/DHCP ... all onto a more powerful PC.. (this was on a PII-266)...

 

I have tried, tried again and fluncked... I just want to setup a mail server to send and receive mail for my own domain (well dnsdns) ...

 

Ive now got exim4 sending mail from command line... (using sendmail alias) but I still can't even check the account via kmail....

 

Im pulling my hair out.... this shouldn't be so hard....

 

anyone got a step by step real idiots guide?

I feel so stupid .... :help:

These might help:

 

Configure exim4 to deliver email to a user's Maildir folder in their home directory.

Nothijg tells you if you need courier-imap etc. installed on the EXOM and whether it is just a MTA etc.

 

sometimes after you mess something up so many times you can't see the wood for the trees :D

Why use exim? use postfix instead... this is what I use in my server --which runs debian-- because I was used to postfix in mandrake and I'm too lazy to learn a different mail server system :P

None easier to set up, or at none I've found then www.qmailrocks.org. It has very well written step by step directions.
