    Hi falko,

    one of the nice person i found over the support forums.

    Nice to meet you, you really have the patience in solving problems and by reading your replies i found that you dont mind qestions even simplest.

    i am running ubuntu 7.10 with ispconfig, just setup squirrelmail as a client to send recieve e-mail.

    whenever i send e-mail its not showing the real domain name address

    like if i login in squirrelmail using email id [email protected]

    and sending e-mail to some yahoo id.

    it is recieved in bulk and the address of sender there is [email protected] instead of domain which i used to login.

    second do i need to setup dns to recieve emails?

    You need to go into squirrelmail config directory then run perl it is pretty much self explanatory from then on.

    now this is only sending with the domain name that i set, but how to send e-mail using virtual domain list?

    second my e-mails going to junk folder of hotmail and yahoo :-s

    third is it necessary to have mx record to receive e-mails? i mean DNS.

    or we can do it without DNS :-s

    If someone else is managing your DNS records (e.g. your domain registrar), then you don't have to run your own name servers, but set up the correct records in your domain registrar's web interface.
