Question Starting a Web Hosting Company


Hi,

I am thinking about starting a web hosting company but I have a couple of questions when it comes to multiple domains.
What is the best way to setup email addresses with different domains. It will probably just be web based email access or imap/pop.
For example if I have:
sales@domain1.com
sales@domain2.com

I know in the past that the email address is associated to a user (sales for example) but since there could be multiple sales@etc is there a way to create a address with a inbox etc but not have a linux account associated to it. Any suggestions on the best way to handle multiple domains.

Thanks

You mean forwarding?

sales@domain -> your@hotmail/gmail/domain2.com?

Check your /etc/aliases

There is also something called 'catch-all'; look into it if you like

Virtual users in DB, here you have solution (it's on Debian, but i'm sure it can be ported on any linux/bsd system) based on database (users and domains) and /home/vmail as a root mail directory. You don't have to have a system account to own an email and it can be like you want same name in different domains (sales@domain1.com , sales@domain2.com) since login is your full email address.
