accessing a pop3 server
I have a couple of questions on accessing a pop3 server. I setup my linux box on my network to (hopefully) be my mail server for my Windows system (using outlook) and my system at home.
I loaded IMAP 2001 which has pop3 and imap.
Things seem to be working fine. But, when I try to access my mailbox over the network with Outlook, I had to use the IP address of my mailserver as opposed to pop3.domain.com. The host name of the server webserver.domain.com didn't work either.
Am I just missing a setting in my hosts file?
For my remote system to work, I am assuming I will have the same issue.
Secondly, when I do access my mailbox using the ip address, I am flooded with messages from:
Cron <root@webserver> nice -n 19 run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
the body of which says this:
Cannot open /etc/news/inn.conf
run-parts: /etc/cron.hourly/inn-cron-rnews exited with return code 1
Can I disable the newserver and why is it addressed to root?
