    Lightbulb Howto: setup a mail server in Ubuntu

    I have rewritten my How to set up a mail server on a GNU / Linux system , which is now based on Ubuntu Hoary.

    (Used to be Mandrake, but is now completely rewritten from scratch to use apt-get, The old one was listed on postfix.org)

    It is a complete step by step guide to install, configure and run these packages:
    Ubuntu + Postfix + Courier IMAP + MySQL + Amavisd-new + SpamAssassin + ClamAV + SASL + TLS + SquirrelMail

    Not sure whether this should be in the server forum, but it is a howto hence the tips forum.
    I must be wrong, but I could not see any other mail server howtos for ubuntu mentioned in the forums.

    Feel free to send me comments.

    All the installation and configuration sections are complete. Some of the later testing and appendix needs padding out, but as any other document it will forever be in development.
    Cheers,
    Ivar (flurdy.com)

    Make sure you hit that little check button under avatars and give people positive rep who do things like this. It doesn't look like anyone is using the rep system and maybe it could be employed to reflect well on people's contributions.

    I never noticed that. That sure would make a good sticky post.

    Thanks flurdy for the HOWTO and thanks Gtaylor for the tip.
    In his later years, Oofty Goofty used to like to sit on the front porch of the General Store and
    reminisce about the time he let the late, great John L. Sullivan hit him with a billiard cue.

    Same here. Too bad, I was looking forward to trying this out!

    Howto's by me:
    Tweak firefox! (URL now works..)
    Backup/Restore your system!
    Avoid having to reboot

    If flurdy or anyone else needs a place to post some how-to's drop me a PM - always have some space here or there.

    Cheers mrcbrown.

    Thanks for the help, however my own hosting is fine.

    I messed around with the network settings on my server on friday,
    and put the wrong ip in for the external interface. whoops.

    So the demise of me and my server was a bit premature..
    Cheers,
    Ivar (flurdy.com)
