This is a project to build a mail server. I will be using these pages to document my design as I go along. Hopefully it will end up as a Howto and also perhaps a tutorial on Linux and e-mail. Although I am building this project for myself, I would like it to become a group project.
Anyone suggesting improvements or pointing out errors or omissions will be welcome. There are many resources available to help in this project, I will be using as many as I can and will be acknowledging and, hopefully, building on them.
Like a lot of people I have at least one old pc kicking around in the loft, so I decided to put it to better use than gathering dust and install some linux on it! I have a home network and have never got round to buying a router for it, instead relying on pc to share the internet connection. This started out many years ago with an old 486 running or should I say crawling Windows 98, but all it had to do was route the traffic and it did remarkably well. A few years on and a couple more PC's on the network this had to be replaced.
