Question IMAP User setup, mail servers, Roundcube webmail client, Receiving Emails


For the past few days I have been on a crazy mail server trek. I finally accomplished building the rpm and installing courier-imap server and the courier auth and fulfilling all the dependencies. Now, I am very very confused.

My Setup:
System:
-FC4
-sendmail
-fetchmail
-postfix
-athlon 2600, 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD

Installed:
-All dependencies for courier-imap
-courier-imap
-RoundCube Webmail
-Apache 2.2.0, PHP 5.1.1, MySQL 5.0.18
-phpMyAdmin

Networking:
-comcast as cable ISP (I'm pretty sure no ports are bing blocked)
-Linksys router (port fowarding setup[110,143,80])
-domain name at godaddy (blah.net) to my global IP at home (static)
-linux box named: redhost.blah.net
-no DNS server on linux box

Good things:
-imap server is running
-can log into Roundcube after using the [maildirmake $HOME/Maildir] command as root
-can send mail

Problems:
-when I send mail from roundcube, gmail says sender is "root@redhost.blah.net"
-when in webmail client sender is "root@localhost" not "root@blah.net"
-can't recieve email
-no idea how to setup MX records
--currently: (see dns below) note: @ means blah.net on godaddy's dns manager
-need to setup users for the imap server
--Do I need to setup system acocunts for these users and then do a maildirmake in their home directory? Is this the only way, it would be nice to have only email acounts so to speak?
-sendmail, fetchmail, and postfix, were all installed during fc4, do I need to keep them? I think only sendmail has a process running.

A (Host)

Description:

An A record short for address record is a record within a zone file that maps a domain name to an IP address. Thus, you can use an A record to indicate the IP address you want your domain or subdomain to point to. Also referred to as a host or host name. For example, if you want your domain "domainnamegoeshere.com" to point to your home computer (whose IP address is, for example, 172.0.0.1), the A record would list "domainnamegoeshere.com," or "@" as the host and "172.0.0.1" as the "Points To" IP address. Entering "@" will automatically insert your domain name as the host name for the A Record. If the A Record is for the domain "www.domainnamegoeshere.com," the host name should be entered as "www."

Do not enter "www.domainnamegoeshere.com" as the host name for an A Record.
