I have a small server, up and running becasue of the help from this excellent list, and I have decided to get a mail server going.
After the relative ease of setting up apache and LAN for internet etc. I thought it might be time for a mail server. A, so I dont have to keep diverting emails everywhere (from several email addresses) and B, so I can provide myself and some friends with pop accounts... Several days later I realise setting up a mail server aint quite that easy.
The question is where do I start, and what would be the best mail server to learn on. I use Redhat 9 on the server and slackware on my laptop and other pcs. I have the redhat 6.2 guide and the redhat 9 bible. The bible briefly describes how to set up sendmail and get it running, but I could not seem to get it working. I needed to try harder but I thought I would see what else is out there.
After a google or two it seemed the general opinion of sendmail was that it was full of holes and increadibly difficult to configure.... the bible didnt say anything about this? I gathered that qmail was safer and easier to install, I was wrong. Under redhat 9 qmail needs to be patched in order for some errno thing to work or not, I didnt quite get what I was patching. In the end I abandoned qmail for failure to get around the errno patch thing. I followed the patch instructions exactly, but got a different error after trying again so abandoned mission for lack of any idea how to solve the problem. Freaked out and deleted any trace of qmail.
In short I need to get my mail server up and running so I can start receiving emails again. What is the best mail program for a newbie to learn on?
