Ok, i have been using fedora core 3 for a while now, and i would like to setup the mail server part. I would like to find out how to do so... because i have never messed with the mail system, is there a tutorial out there on how to do so. Also i would like to use squirrelmail for the client side. I also would like to know how to manage the users and domain names.
If you need this ASAP, I'd suggest you research a webhost that offers a control panel to make things like that simple, but ask your webhost first about cPanel or Plesk, they most likely will offer one. I prefer cPanel. And cPanel does offer squirrelmail, user management, and domain management.
Originally posted by blisswebhosting I moved from Sendmail to Postfix a few years ago and never looked back.
I'd second the Postfix recommendation. Though it took me a long time to get Postfix virtual domains working with iPlanet LDAP, mostly due to having to tweak LDAP schemas, it is a great, very flexible and open solution.
Qmail is also broadly used and highly recommended.
Cyrus is considered very good when you have huge scaling requirements. I found it too daunting to setup for a small 10-20 user environment and went with Postfix+Courier+ClamAV+Spamassassin.
