I was thinking about setting up my own mail server. Problem is my ISP will not let me have a static IP unless I upgrade to a Business class service which is just too expensive for home use. As a work around I use a DDNS service from Dlink, which is actually done via DYNDNS.com. So essentially I have mydomain.dlinkddns.com point to my Dynamic WAN IP, and it is all automatically managed by my router.
Is there a way I can have mymaildomain.com point to my mail server without it being a subdomain of my DDNS (mydomain.dlinkddns.com)? In other words I would like to have the email email@example.com
and not have it be firstname.lastname@example.org
, or email@example.com
or something like that. I know someone has done it, I just have never done it. Not quite sure what to google to find the answer myself either.
Can anyone point me in the right direction and give me a starting point to do my research?
