Webmail Access
I just want to thank you guys first for these tutorials;

Now how would I access my webmail on my server (ubuntu 10.10 tutorial setup) from the internet?

I can access it locally by (not real IP)

Forward port 80 from your router to
You can get a hostname from that you can use to access webmail from outside your LAN.

Hi Falko, we have an ISP provider that handles the routing of e-mails and all; I am guessing I need to ask then to forward the traffic to the specified port.

Now am I able to forward the email traffic to another port besides "80"?

If yes where can I edit that on the server?

If your ISP doesn't block ports 25 (email) and 80 (http), all you have to do is configure your router to forward these ports. Your ISP doesn't have anything to do with this.

Thanks Falko, all works fine now. I got a from dynDNS then instructed the guys that route our outside IP address to point traffic to that url to my local PC that holds mail. Perfect. :D
