I followed this tutorial "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Fedora Core 5)". The goal was to setup email accounts for my different domains. I put one in and am trying to configure outlook to check it but nothing works. I also ran into a problem with this mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword for some reason - I could not get this to work - I can connect the other way but this is not working. I am wondering if there is a way to test to make sure that I did everything correctly? I am also a bit confused by the hostname in /etc/hosts? 192.168.0.100 server1.example.com server1 I dont understand the second part if my domain is example.com then what is the first part server1? I dont understand and I am wondering if this is the problem. Should server1 be mail? Lastly - I need help on configuring the mail client. I have tired and I cant seem to get it to work. It seemed like it was able to send but I never received the email. For the username I am using just the name and for the incoming mail server I am using mydomain.com. I have tried enambling ssl on the out going mail server and that works it even pulls the cert but for some reason I am not able to get the supposedly sent email.
