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
configuration.

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,
Rob.


Rob,

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