    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/ [email protected]:/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.

    for restoring you'd basically just revert the locations in rsync....

    rsync [options] FROM TO

    so just switch FROM TO and that should restore it... although I always seem to have a few issues with trailing "/" or not.... :)

    Thanks for your reply. Was not sure if it was that simple as you said trailing /
    and other little things seem to make the biggest difference.

    well, I always mix up when I need them and when not with rsync... so I restore to a totally different directory and then I just move the files to their right location.
