Setting up a SMTP server under Slackware 12.0


How should I set up a SMTP server on Slackware 12.0? So that I can telnet into 120.0.0.1 on port 25?

Thanks,
User Name.

I hope you meant "telnet into 127.0.0.1 on port 25"?
You need to make the rc.sendmail file executable so that Sendmail will be started during the boot of your computer.

Code:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.sendmail
Next time, post your Slackware related question in the Slackware forum where it will be seen by a much larger crowd of experienced slackers.

I did mean 127.0.0.1, simple typo.

What if I wanted to execute the daemon manually? What command should I use? And what command should I use to disable it?

Well you can run the script manually if it's not 'chmod +x' (chmod -x)
'sh /etc/rc.d/rc.sendmail start' and stop it with 'sh /etc/rc.d/rc.sendmail stop'

Alright, now is it possible to set up my own email account that is hosted by my own computer? And if so, how could I do it?

I know this is kind of vague, but I'm not sure on how to say it.
