Default Need Help - email via ISP & Dynamic DNS

Hi all,

I had been using windows-based Mdaemon for sometime and now migrating to linux (ubuntu 6.06). I had setup ISPConfig, but dont know where or how to make postfix send mail out via my ISP SMTP. My ISP requires SMTP-Authentication for using their SMTP as relay. Need help on where to configure??

Also, I'm using zoneedit.com to dynamically set my ip. Is there any solution to update zoneedit.com from linux in a regular basis? I've read ddclient, but do idea how to use

Try this:
Code:
apt-get install ddclient
Edit /etc/ddclient.conf and restart ddclient:
Code:
/etc/init.d/ddclient restart

For DDClient, I had downloaded, configure /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf to work with my zoneedit setting. However, I would like to know how to make DDClient loaded up automatically every hardware reboot? also, how to make ddclient update ip address say every 30mins?

This happens automatically if you installed it like I wrote.

It updates the IP address whenever it changes. That should be sufficient.

Default relayhost has been esay but...

thanks for easy explanation for relayhost, and now.

Now, I want catch mail from external mail server, and put into maildir user.

for example, local user into domain probe.com has email user@probe.com and this user want to catch email from externaluser@domain.com into user@probe.com.

is this possible?

thanks for all, and great work

Default follow up

First of all, I thought I had everything setup until I noticed something wrong, I can't send email to address of my same domain or even to itself. Eg. user1@domain.com can't send to either user1@domain.com or user2@domain.com. All tries to get through the relayhost.

How to make it in such a way that all local mails (assuming hosting different domain) will not go out via the relayhost.

Secondly, how to make POP3 to login using user1@domain.com instead of web1_user? also make SMTP using also user1@domain.com?

Thirdly, where can email users change their password? I had installed both Squirrelmail and UebiMiau, but none has ability to change password.

Lastly, how come when I created a new email user and setup user real name, and then goes to either Squirrelmail and UebiMiau, the user name and email address are wrong??? i still have to reencode them in both Squirrelmail and UebiMiau to make it work.

Please open a new thread for this, otherwise this one will become confusing.

Make sure that domain.com is listed in /etc/postfix/local-host-names.

This is not possible with ISPConfig because ISPConfig sets up system users, not virtual users.

You must enable Mailuser for the web site in ISPConfig, and then your users can log in on http(s)://www.example.com:81/mailuser/ and change their passwords there.

That's normal. You also have to configure the email address and name in a normal email client like Thunderbird or Outlook. This has nothing to do with ISPConfig.

Make sure that domain.com is listed there, not www.domain.com or anything else, it must be domain.com.

If user1@domain.com is listed in /etc/postfix/virtusertable and is pointing to web1_user, then both will work.
