pop-3 mail server?


how would i create a server that programs such as outlook, slypheed, and Magellan can all access if possible can you include a good distro for the job, and the programs required for it too. this is going to be used for a very small amount of people. (around 5-7)

I don't quite understand your situation, but here are the most helpful e-mail links I have found. Perhaps one of these would help. Any distro handles e-mail with the proper tools installed.

# Common e-mail tools
sendmail - postfix - sends mail to local users (and internet when configured correctly)
fetchmail - gets mail from internet accounts (non-Hotmail type)
procmail - sorts and delivers into separate mailboxes
mutt - mail client that sucks less than all the others
Email the Linux Way
Suresh Ramasubramanian's email guide
The Linux Mail User HOWTO
The Linux Electronic Mail Administrator HOWTO
Gotmail, a utility to download mail from Hotmail type accounts

Also there is Q-Popper from the Eudora Team. Personally tried it once a long time ago and failed miserably, but many people have had success with it. It's a pop3 server in a box

Cool
