Mail Server Howto

Post by Heeter » 2005/08/21 05:49:18

Hi Guys,

I am totally new to CentOS 4.1. I am trying to switch over from a Win2003Server to a CentOS Server. I would like to start with a MailServer.

This is my first time working with Linux.

Where could I a locate a howto on setting up a Mailserver.

Thanks in advance,

Heeter

I'd also suggest browsing the documentation for Postfix, Spamassassin, AmavisD, ClamAV, Dovecot, Fetchmail and Squirrelmail.

Thanks Guys,

Would it possible to locate a mailserver guide with GUI instead of command line?

Thanks again,

Heeter

Linux does has GUI interface do normal computing, but if you are going to setup mail sever, You might need to get your hand dirty with linux shell and use to configure the server. Because lots of the stuff easialy done using shell.

It will sounds little hard at the start, but after a while you will know why do i need a GUI at the first place ;)

hoep that helps

The best tutorial that I've found is the one at [url=http://www.hughesjr.com/content/view/40/30/Guides]HughesJr.com - Postfix Install on CentOS4[/url]

My overall installation was CentOS 4 + Postfix + Dovecot + Squirrelmail with Amavisd-new + ClamAV + Spamassassin instead of mailscanner

I am also using MLMMJ - (Mailing List Management Made Joyful) as the mailing list / newsletter manager, which is fairly easy to set up using the documentation on their site.

A couple of months ago I wouldn't have dreamed of installing anything Linux using command line, but now after doing it theres no way I'd ever install any server using a GUI. I'm usre once you get started on it, you'll realise that command line is by far the easiest way to go...

There is also plenty of Tutorials and troubleshooting guides for Amavisd-new and how to get it working properly with clamav and spamassassin.

Good luck with it anyways :)

If you want to ask for help, then post the question in a fresh thread.

Don't hijack a two-and-a-half year-old post.
