I just read this thread
and I got intrigued. I have a LAN at home composed of 5 computers, 2 windows: Dad's, mom's, 3 linux: my own, my wife's and the little router, file, print server. Now my question is this, can I actually have my local "domain"
(Workgroup for file sharing actually) to be identified as a domain which might recieve e-mail from the ISP and then "enroute"
through the server to the clients on the network?
For instance, suppose the server named coal recieves e-mail from the pop3 accounts from the ISP, then this coal server routes the messages to the corresponding computer whether it be oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen or phosphorus. And all these computers are in the "domain" chemist.org, so the incomming e-mail from the ISP would get spam filtered in the server prior to be sent to the clients at, for instance firstname.lastname@example.org
Is that possible?
EDIT: May be I should have posted this thread in the Networking forum, perhaps? My appolgies, Moderators.
