I am trying to find out how I can use the how-to with out installing Bind9 since I do not have a static IP address. I ran into a problem last time with not giving the correct IP address to Bind9. I am being a Linux Firewall "Astaro" this allows any SMTP request to go to my mail server. I also want to know if I were to back up the mail directory using RSYNC what will I need to do to restore it??? rsync -avzhe ssh --delete /var/vmail/biggdog.biz firstname.lastname@example.org:/c/bup/server This is the way I sync or copy my mail directory at this time. Any help would be great. BTW it is password-less.
