I am also configuring mail server in this box. How can I add hostname and how do i make the mail server point to this page? If i add a hyperlink(which points to in apache web server page, it should open the mail page or open squirremail.


Thx in advance.

INternally you could just adapt the /etc/hosts file likesuch mysrv myothername, myothername

From the outside you need the dns server to have a CNAME entry
