Hi, I want to setup a Spare PC to be a "Mail Server", in that I want it to be able to connect to my ISP's pop3 account, download new messages, hit it with a spam agent.
THEN, I want to be able to connect to the server from my office PC using Thunderbird to retrieve my newly de-spammed messages. Just one user/mailbox/account. I don't need to send through the server, just receive.
I have been playing around with Dovecot, fetchmail, etc, and have a basic understanding of what they do, but I just can't seem to connect all the dots, soooo, here goes:
1. What apps do I need/ on my server that will collect email from my pop3 account?
I could use an example of a config file that shows how you connect to the pop3 account, and pass it your user ID, PW, etc.
( I currently have Dovecot, Fetchmail, Procmail, and Sendmail. . .)
2. How do I then retrieve the messages from my client pc? What would I point thunderbird at on the local server?
I am using Ubuntu 7.10 on both server and client machines.
Please advise! Thanks.
