Hi
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 server on vmware and want to install roundcube mail server on that so that I can host my email server.

I have installed webmin and can access the server via port 10000

but don;t have any clue what to do next.
as far as I can understand I need to do following things in line:

1) Change my hostname to actual domain i want emails to come and send thrugh like mail.demomailserver.com
2) install postfix and configure that
3) change my MX recods from hosting server to point to my own IP
4) as my IP is via ADSL so i need to use some sort of DHCP or BIND?? service
5) Install roundcube software and create mailboxes

do i need LDAP as well?
please correct me if I have got this right!!

Hi,

maybe u should try to look in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=185913&highlight=flurdy
The guide that flurdy has there is very comprehensive and it also includes Roundcube. Going through that could help you.

It might be easier if you tend to one thing at a time. What I did on my server was to install Apache and Postfix first, and get them running. Then I installed webmin. It was some months before I installed things like squirrelmail and roundcube.

thank you jsra

i have already tried that but somehow lack the terminal command capabilities due to high exposure of MS GUI (:oops:)

what i have done is installed a fresh Ubuntu 10.10 server and run tasksel and installed mail server and lamp.

can u suggest what to do next like install what packages and in which order.

thank you in advance
