View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mail Server for a Newb

March 6th, 2009, 07:51 PM
I'm brand new to linux and want to set up a mail server. I've installed 8.04 LTS Server and followed a couple tutorials. I think I've made progress but just realized a fundamental problem.

I have this server setup on a LAN that also has a Windows 2003 Server that has DNS for AD setup. Also, the domain name is jpresidence.com (however this is only a local domain, not public) and the public domain that I plan to use for mail is yourcomputerdude.com.. So i'm going through configuring hosts files and dns forward and reverse zones... but then realize I don't know what settings i'm supposed to use (between the local and public domains).

If anyone can help sort this out for me I'd appreciate it.

P.S. I'd love a simple solution for mail server setup on Ubuntu... under 20 mailboxes needed with only SMTP and POP3 needed... if any one has any ideas.
