Question Seemingly Endless Questions Reguarding Email Servers...

Hello All!

I'm a beginner web admin and I have a ton of questions about settings up an email server on Fedora 8. Now, I've gone through the tutorial located here, and everything seemed to go pretty well, but I'm not sure how to actually use it!

This is where the "seemingly endless questions" comes into play. After going through that tutorial successfully and configuring it according to what I believe to be right, I'm left with the question: Well, now what?

I'm using the dyndns.org host service and I'd like to be able to continue using that for the mail server. Does this mean that my email addresses will be user@example.dyndns.org?

Is there a GUI interface to configure/add/remove email accounts?

I guess my biggest question is, after the tutorial, where does one go from there? Is there a guide that walks you through the setup of users accounts and how to test them?

Thanks for any help on the matter!

-Derek

Get webmin if you have difficulty to handle it through CLi.

Otherwise,use below command :
$:useradd -g -O -s -d -m
-g = 1st group
-O = other group
-s = shell
-d = home directory

example1 : $useradd -g users -O ftp -s /bin/bash -d /home/jacky -m jacky
example2 : $passwd jacky
example3 : $usermod -e 20080228

1st = add new user "jacky" with 1st group "user" & 2nd group "ftp"
2nd = create new password fro jacky
3rd = account expired

Read the manual :
$man useradd

Testing the account : logout then try login using jacky username & password.

If you don't want to install ISPConfig, you can as well set up email accounts manually: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2
