Depending on how many accounts you have and keeping in mind that you have a dynamic IP address you may find it better to have the e-mail delivered to your ISP and then automatically downloaded to a local server using fetchmail.

If you don't want to do that then take a look at the dynamic DNS services offered by companies such as http://www.no-ip.org

My broadband account only provide 1 email account and it is not my company domain name. eg user@otherdomain.com. Thus i would like to use my own domain then i rent a webhosting with other webhosting company.

We are a trading company, so we need 15 emails account. So we need to setup our local linux email server. Thanks for help.

if the webhosting i rent which is support wildcard *@mydomain.com email facility.

In other words,the mailbox which does the "catch all" for the mails received for anyuser@mydomain.com.

Then my local mail server turns these individual mailboxes into virtual POP3 boxes with in the network.


Thus suggestion or solution that i can make use of this to setup my email server?

Fetchmail will let you download the messages from a pop mailbox if you have one.

I think your best solution is probably to use somethign like zoneedit's store and forward package:
http://zoneedit.com/doc/faq.html#mx2

This would let you run a full mail server but store would your mail if your IP changed etc.
