e-mail server setup

Postby Guest » Sat Jul 02, 2005 9:19 am


i would like to setup a small e-mail server (distro not yet decided gear towards Debian). The e-mail server must be accessible from out side my network (as i travel from home a lot :D) using outlook for one cusion (hoping to change that :D) and kmail for me, all i really need help with is the initaial setup of the email server.

thanks for the help

i do know that on the server each person who requires email must have a /home on the server (which is fine by me ).

There is an all-in-one server distro at www.contribs.org called SME Server. It includes web, email, ftp and windows servers (choose which ones you want to use) and a web-based management interface... or if you want to do it yourself, Debian has an excellent email facilities using Exim I believe.

Alternatively try ClarkConnect, used in it several small businesses in the past. A very nice web-based management system. We use a custom Fedora based setup on our servers here but for small servers I would reccomend Postfix - Procmail - Dovecot for a very stable setup.
