sending email from LINUX to windows on LAN
i'm working on a project wherin i have a standalone LAN with computers running on LINUX(fedora 9) and with windows (vista and XP).
i want to have the provision of sending mails between the client PCs and server PC(fedora 9).
So, i wanted to enquire how mails can be sent between Linux and windows OS?
are mail services operating system independent?
how can i give user rights i.e i want the respective clients to be able to send mails to the server and vice versa but should not be able to do so between themselves.
Please note that there is no internet connection to the LAN.
if such provisions do exist then i would be obliged if a step by step procedure can be given as i am new to linux.
