    Ok, I I have Ubuntu 6.xx LTS for a mail server installed with Postfix, ISPConfig (now installing-takes forever-compared to rest of installs). How do I do the following:

    1. Verify/Install SpamAss if not installed and configured
    2. Verify/Install AvClam if not installed and configured
    3. setup users email accounts
    4. Test that is mail is coming in via Outlook Express or another email client

    Currently, I have a domain with a ISP hosting the site. I was told I could redirect mail. So here is what I want to do. I have a Linksys Router with a DMZ on it. I was thinking I could put my server in the DMZ and forward ports POP3/SMTP to this server. Since my ISP is forwarding to my public my server should receive and send mail correct. Any help woulf be great. I am just learning about how to do this.

    If you use ISPConfig, 1 + 2 is installed.
    3 + 4 Please read the manual first and search in the forum. This has been answered several times and is described in the manual.

    Checking/Testing AVClam and SpamAss

    As I was installing ISPconfig from a remote workstation-my connection got disconnected from the session prior to me answering questions about Mysql and port to use to connnect (install had been runnning for about 2 hours). Is there anyway for me to verift ISPconfig got installed correctly as awell as AVClam and SpamAss. I also install Webmin and Webmin reports SpamAss is not configured or installed.

    If you got disconnected, then ISPConfig is not installed, and you must run the installation again.
    If you are afraid of more disconnects, you can use screen to install ISPConfig:
