BIND and SENDMAIL


Someone please help!!!

I am currently trying to set up a new server using fedora core 2. My ultimate goal is to set up a mailing list on this box using Mailman. However, before I can do that, I need to set up sendmail and bind on the computer.

I have already set the config for my domain to point at my address. My namesever will be named ns2.*** where the *** is the domain I am setting up.

My problem is that I am a nubie and I have been reading the sendmail books for days and have not gotten anywhere in it. (It is rather cryptic to me).

I have bind and sendmail already installed and running on the computer, however I don't know how to finish setting them up. Could someone give me a brief overview on how what to edit so I can use pop3 mail in the box and how to set up bind to do what I want it to?

Please someone help!! I am in despearte need! If I am not clear on something, please let me know and I will answer to the best of my ability.

THANKS!!

THANK YOU!!!

You are a lifesaver. These tutorials acutally look readable. I have been searching for days and have spent a LOT of money on books that didn't seem this good.

Thanks a million
