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.

shrapz, Jul 9, 8:30am
Lol should have asked , would have sold it to ya on mates rates

flewy, Jul 9, 8:31am
Actaully was very keen, I got a duron 1000 here running my server, was keen to grab your for the upgrade. LOL Oh well

flewy, Jul 9, 8:31am
Then how do i use my custom email address without mail forward?

pyro_sniper2002, Jul 9, 8:33am
Can zoneedit not pop your mail? Do one for say flewy@and then a catch all or whatever?

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

flewy, Jul 9, 8:36am
Hmmm , and then just set an account in thunderbird,,, i was thinking i needed the mail server to catch it?

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

flewy, Jul 9, 8:49am
LOL I may yet

seriouslycgi, Jul 9, 8:52am
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.

flewy, Jul 9, 8:58am
You have to pay for it thru the registra. not in to that, im on a freebie mish.

seriouslycgi, Jul 9, 8:59am
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.
