    Help setting up email server

    Hi all,

    I am looking for any assistance I can get with my project. I have registered a domain (costguy.com) with Dyn and signed up for dyn dns standard since my charter account is dynamic. I am wanting to install postfix/dovecot/squirrelmail to go along with apache.

    Are there any simple guides to do thi? I have looked and gotten samba, webmin, and apache functional but can't figure out the email portion.

    If I need to give anymore info, I would be glad to and thanks for any help.

    I have now resetup my Ubuntu server checking LAMP, SAMBA, openssh this time and postfix works. but when I send an email is shows up as user@mail.domain.com instead of User@domain.com

    Does anyone know how to resolve this?

    Thanks for the link. Postfix is somewhat functional part of it is my ISP though (no reverse DNS)

    I don't know if I need to start a new thread, but is there any reason that the DNS server quits. I had set my nameservers to the dyn dns that I am paying for and stopped looking up names. I could ping it but that was it.

    I switched to my ISPs (charter) DNS and all is well again.

    Are you running the update client with the dyn dns?

    I am not.

    I thought the Dyn DNS servers they gave me kept my domain updated. My bad. I will install the update client now.

    Thanks for your help.

    I ended up using this guide to make all my email functional:
