sendmail, iptables and security


Hi

i have a few questions. I am using red hat 8.0 and trying to host my own web page and mail server.

1. I want to host my own mail server, do i need virus checking on the Server?
2. How do i make the changes i made to iptables stick? They seem to flush out after a reboot
3. How do i create a new mailbox for a user using sendmail?
4. How do i setup my windows 2000 machine to accept mail through the mail server?
5. What do i need to do to secure my web and mail hosting server? Any good reference sites i can look at please?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
