Dude just study up and write your own. Then you'll know exactly how it works

geek_woogmo, Jul 9, 7:33 pm

Lol, geez cant i just start with something and learn from there, im a kinetic learner

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 7:36 pm

Flewy are you stupid or something? Its easy as.. Nah i have no idea aye .. lol

geek_shrapz, Jul 9, 7:42 pm

Pffft and you sold that bloody motherboard and cpu i was bout to ask for LOL

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 7:44 pm

I wouldn't try flewy, if you don't know where to start, then (in the nicest way possible) I wouldn't bother. It isn't an easy process, trust me.

I dont really see the point unless you have a use for exchange etc, if so then buy a second hand SBS box.

geek_pyro_sniper2002, Jul 9, 8:30 pm

Lol should have asked , would have sold it to ya on mates rates

geek_shrapz, Jul 9, 8:30 pm

Actaully was very keen, I got a duron 1000 here running my server, was keen to grab your for the upgrade. LOL Oh well

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 8:31 pm

Then how do i use my custom email address without mail forward?

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 8:31 pm

Can zoneedit not pop your mail? Do one for say flewy@and then a catch all or whatever?

geek_pyro_sniper2002, Jul 9, 8:33 pm

Spam is such a pain in the arse these days you're better off letting someone else deal with it.

geek_vtecintegra, Jul 9, 8:35 pm

Hmmm , and then just set an account in thunderbird,,, i was thinking i needed the mail server to catch it?

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 8:36 pm

Mercury mail server from NZ's own David Harris.

Damn it flewy LINUX!!!!!!! use debian and sear4ch google everytime you want to run a different type of server.

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 8:49 pm

LOL I may yet

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 8:49 pm

But yeah like mentioned before its probably easier to let someone else run the spam assassin for you. its easy to set up (not that i have one running but i have in the past) and you set it up with your domain registration and aim it at your server. run clamav for antivirus.

geek_seriouslycgi, Jul 9, 8:52 pm

You have to pay for it thru the registra. not in to that, im on a freebie mish.

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 8:58 pm

Seriously man when you install debian it asks what servers you want, in your case basically just check all of them, have a spare machine nearby you can go online and find out what settings you need to put in for mail server, if not do a basic install and do each one by howto(tutorial) i usually install something and have it going by the next day with linux if im following a howto.

geek_seriouslycgi, Jul 9, 8:59 pm

Your worse than the Iphone fanboys LOL Just kidding. I want to use XP makes a tougher challenge.

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 9:01 pm

geek_seriouslycgi, Jul 9, 10:16 pm

Im doing what your doing what your doing too but mines offline for the moment cos the kids stole my only crossover cable lol

geek_seriouslycgi, Jul 9, 10:21 pm

I dont see any free email server suggestions thats what im after

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 10:32 pm

is what I use.

geek_r.g.nixon, Jul 9, 11:20 pm

Flewy you run the server and direct your domain to forward the emails to your server, just like a hosting package.

geek_seriouslycgi, Jul 9, 11:29 pm

Oh ffs lets talk busyness call me in the arvo

geek_flewy, Jul 9, 11:41 pm
