email and server


I have the following question.

I got an Linux server (slackware 8.1) which has an IRC server - httpd server - and I just configured sendmail on it correctly so it would receive emails

I have my domain forwarded to my home ip
www.mydomain.com and all emails with ....@mydomain.com comes to the user that sendmail has.
I can read that mail using webmin.
what I need to do know is to make so, that people on the network can receive the mail in their mailbox, what program and setting do I need for that?

so I generally need a program where people can connect to, to get their mail.

Please help

u need a pop3 or an imap server. are u sure that their mailsl are spooled in ur server? (/var/spool/mail/*).

for pop3, slack has the ipop3d tgz file. u need to install it, enable it in inetd and restart inetd.

then, ur client pcs can point their email software to have your slack box as the pop3 server.

hth.

what is the problem, and what can I do to fix it?

look at your log files to see what the ssh server is complaining about. try /var/log/messages and /var/log/secure
