I have tried to setup a Linux Mail server just for testing for a while. I have Debian currently installed.

Now I am not actually new to Linux as in never really used Linux before, I've worked with tons of Linux Distros from Slackware, Ubuntu, Debian, Gentoo (stage 1), SuSe, and more. The only thing I am a tad bit new to really is setting up an email server.

What I am looking for is a newbie type setup for an email server because every other howto I have found either messes up my machine because it turns out to be an old howto which is outdated or is missing a bunch of steps or it's for the wrong distro.

I have Debian Sarge 3.1 installed right now and my web server (Apache) works very nicely.

All I really want is SMTP, POP3, and Webmail to start out with. Then hopefully at the end add SpamAssassin and ClamAV at the end.

Thanks in advanced.

maybe you should then consider this one

debian :

debian : --- this one looks very good, once you finish it, we will help you to install the squirremail part, since it has no webmail...but that is a minor problem, trust me.

I'm sorry but I only use CentOS smile.gif
