Not sure whether Postfix is what you need but I understand that Postfix can do something like this (I believe they call them virtual domains and you can define multiple virtual domains for use as mailboxes for multiple users with multiple domains as an ISP might need to do). I can't really point you to a simple HOWTO to tell you how to set these up, though. I would suggest the `Postfix' by Richard Blum. I've been using it as my Postfix bible and I find it quite useful. (I found the program's web site a little light on good documentation when I was starting out with it. The book was a help (if a bit pricy but then what decent computer book isn't nowadays. :-( ).

Cheers,

Rick

Thanks for the reply, I downloaded postfix-2.0.3 and after reading the INSTALL I attempted to install. It errored out after the 'make' command but I was able to work that out. Then on the 'make install' it returns the following error:


/usr/i486-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -ldb
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [master] Error 1
make: *** [master] Error 1


not sure what it means by -ldb, the ld dir is present. Any suggestions? Also, would the networking forum be better for this type of post? Thanks in advance.

postfix needs to be able to use .db files to store aliases etc.
Wild guess is that you dont have the berkely db stuff installed. You probably need either db1 or db2 and the devel packages installed before it will compile.

Why not just try installing the suse postfix package and let it tell you what it needs?

I have the personal version of suse 8.0 and it doesnt appear to have the postfix package. I;ve searched and can not find the suse postfix package. Can anyone supply a link where I can download the suse postifx?

try ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/8.0/suse/

Just because you bought the personal edition doesnt mean that you cant install rpms that arent part of it.
