Setting up email


How would I go about doing the following:

I need to setup the email with some authentication relay to another email server. In this case, I will be using one of my public email addresses and it's email server and I will probably use username/password authentication. You may have to change the port on which "sendmail" is run because some ISPs block this information.

Tasks:
On the Ubunto system that I have created, I need to configure the server to have the capability to send email to the internet. I may need to relay email through a valid email server using username/password authentication.

I need to install postfix on the system
app-get install postfix (hint)

I need to install Mail (mailx) on the system

I need also need to setup root's email as follows

A copy should remain local on the machine

A copy should be sent to one of your public email addresses

I need to get the public email working first.

Any help would be appreciated,

Theo

Hi Theo,
Is this, by any chance, a homework assignment? Please refer to the LQ rules on the subject. If it's not, can you tell us what steps you have taken so far and where you have encountered problems on this project.
ciao,
jdk

email question

Yes it is s school assignment. I am not looking for the exact steps but rather a general procedure. What areas do I need to look into? ie: scripting(does one look for email scripting procedures and such)?

Thanks

What instructions were you given in class? Is there anything specific you are unclear about?
