View Full Version : [ubuntu] Super Newbie Installation

June 16th, 2011, 02:17 AM
Hi everyone,

I am new here. Super newbie, so everything is alien to me. I was tasked by my company to set-up an e-mail server.

I've heard that the easiest distro is ubuntu. I installed ubuntu-11.04-server-i386 on a spare laptop for test. Wiped the whole hard drive. Chose Mail Server. Then followed the instructions.

My inquiries are:
1. did i missed anything?
2. what is the system mail name? is it the same as the domain name?
2. after installing ubuntu-11.04-server-i386, and booting, now what?

My friend told me to install Zimbra.

All feedbacks are welcome. Thank you in advance for your help.
