Hi List,

I am not in a position atm to get the mailserver set up at once...
I have a few hours every day to get the job done...
This way it is difficult to stay concentrated.
In yast is a section mailserver.
It says: mail server is not configured.
Select configuration type according your needs.
If you want to use sendmail as your MTA you have to use Standard

What exactly does that mean?

I have fetchmail, procmail and courier-imap installed atm, all seem to work.
When i choose advanced, there need some pkgs get installed.
When i use sendmail i get asked for my connection type...

tia for an answer,


I would stay with postfix, and use dovecot as the imap/pop package for
access. I still have a general howto for mail server setup:
