I'd like to find out how to read local mail, and eventually set up a local mail server for my family. I don't have a domain -- and was hoping not to set one up at this point...
 I have yet to read any messages to ROOT. The old unix 'mail' program works quite well, but it's such a pain... Can I set up Thunderbird to read the ROOT mailbox? If so, what's the server name? I've used my computer name (linuxserver) and my local IP address, but no luck. Perhaps I'm doing it wrong...
 I've seen people praising all kinds of mail programs like Sendmail or Qmail and the like.
Hmmmmm.... How do you nest lists with vB code? How do I turn on HTML code in my post? Hmmmm.
- [a] I would like to know if I can set up my linux box to retrieve messages from RoadRunner and store them locally, then my wife and I can retrieve them with our mail programs.
[b] Without setting up a domain, can I set up mailboxes for my wife and daughters that they can check? I don't want to use RoadRunner for my kids until they're ready to wade through spam...
