Software :: Configuring Fetchmail - Mail Server Setup

Aug 6, 2010

I have Ubuntu and I want to setup a mailserver. I use fetchmail to fetch mail But I wanted to configure fetchmail with fetchmailconf. I know, I can edit the configfile, but I wanted to use fetchmailconf. According to the man of fetchmail, fetchmailconf is very handy.

In synaptic, I installed fetchmail and I wanted to install fetchmailconf : well it didnt work
fetchmailconf needs fetchmail So, no worries: I searched the internet for fetchmailconf, but I couldn't find any. Same with fetchmail6.3.2.2Ubuntu2

First of all, I want to flame synaptic for supplying 2 different versions for 2 pieces of software that only work with eachother.
Second: where can I find 2 matching versions? Or fix synaptic or maybe someone has a really cool solution?

Server :: Fetchmail - Download Mail For Accounts In Different Domains

Dec 21, 2010

I have fetch mail in my root directory like this:

set no bouncemail
set postmaster
set logfile /var/log/fetchmail
protocol pop3
no dns

envelope X-Envelope-To:
user "" there
pass "mail"

Server :: Setup An MTA To Pass Mail Onto An External ISP/mail Provider?

Jul 1, 2009

I have a Fedora 10 machine that I want to setup to send email. However I don't want it to be a full blown SMTP setup.What I am looking to achieve is when something sends email from the local machine (e.g. from cron) to an address I want it to use an MTA on the local machine which will then connect to, and authenticate with, my e-mail providers SMTP server this will then take care of actually sending the e-mail.I don't want, or need, to setup a full blown SMTP service (i.e. only the local machine should be able to use it) so sendmail seems a bit over the top for my needs. Nor do I want to mess about with MX records (am I right in thinking this will mean I have to manage all mail for my domain?).

OpenSUSE Network :: Configuring Mail / Web Server With A Static Ip?

Aug 29, 2010

I think that i lost my memory, because i completely forgot how to accomplish this.

I have a WEB/MAIL server configured to work on a static IP address, lets say

Now I wanna point a domain to that server to get the services up and running, lets say ...

The static IP Address is assigned by my Internet Provider.

I'm lost in the part of connecting the domain with the server.

I have the domain DNS pointing to the ISP name servers, but I don't remember if this is the correct way, or if I have to setup my own DNS server.

Slackware :: Set Up Fetchmail And Mutt To Send And Receive Mail From The Terminal?

Mar 28, 2010

In my continuing quest to live without X most of the time, I am trying to set up fetchmail and Mutt to get and send mail. I only want to be able to send and receive text based mail, and so far I am running into trouble with what I think should be pretty simple. For receiving my mail, I believe I only need to create a .fetchmailrc file in my home directory with the entry:

Code: poll [URL] protocol pop3 username "myusername" password "mypassword" But I get:
2 messages for myusername at (7965 octets).
fetchmail: connection to localhost:smtp [] failed: Connection refused.
fetchmail: SMTP connect to localhost failed
fetchmail: SMTP transaction error while fetching from and delivering to SMTP host localhost
reading message of 2 (2734 octets)fetchmail: Query status=10 (SMTP)

It appears to me that it is finding mail but does not know where to deliver it and is refused a connection to my machine. Also, I cannot figure out how to set up my SMTP for my ISP in Mutt to send mail. Can someone point me to a simple tutuorial on how to do these things. I really only want to do what you would with Thunderbird, but from the command line.

OpenSUSE :: Receiving Mail Through A "standard" Mail Server Setup?

Aug 25, 2010

Through yast2 I went to network services-->Mail server and took the standard option. My connection type is Permanent, filled in the outgoing server information and got to the incoming mail screen.

I told it to accept remote SMTP connections, open a port in the firewall and bypassed the downloading section since I just want to directly receive mail (I did however tell it I wanted a daemon to fetchmail). Told it to forward root's mail to me and a delivery mod of Directly. And finished.

The system sends mail out but I can't seem to receive any. What did I do wrong or what else do I need to do?

Server :: Centos Virtual Server Mail Setup ?

Nov 3, 2010

I just recently purchased a vs from a company and i am trying to set up a web site on it with kloxo and set up the mail for it upon setting up the mail settings it says:

"It is very essential that you set the my name to a properly resolvable hostname, since otherwise, many public mailservers like hotmail will reject mails from your server"

Now this is my first time setting up a vs before i have set up linux vm's to get email access but that was about a year ago.

Debian :: Mail And IM Server Setup ?

Aug 22, 2011

I would like to set up a mail and instant messaging server running on squeeze.It will be running on a 1ghz celeron (pentium 3 era) with 1gb ram and 10gb hdd (I'm assuming these are high enough specs) It will have less than 10 accounts and probably no webserver (not sure if good idea). I am also unsure of what IM protocols would be best for this. I would prefer to do all this from the command line if possible (so long as it's not too hard) and preferably from a remote machine (so SSH?) I prefer IMAP if possible but pop3 and smtp are also fine. I would also like to be able to connect remotely with encryption (not a big requirement -just a nice feature)

General :: Setup Mail Server Behind A Router?

May 13, 2010

I've just finished installed a mail server with Fedora 12 + postfix + courier. I also have Squirrelmail and ISPConfig3 installed. The mail server is behind a router. I have [URL] pointed to the static IP at my router. My ISP has opened port 25 & 110 for me and my router has these 2 ports forwarded to my mail server ( in local network can connect to my mail server and send emails with no problem but cannot receive emails from outside. I tried an email dossier and it saids connection timed out on smtp session. Do I need to include my static IP somewhere in the configuration so that it communicates to the world properly?

Server :: Setup Bind 9 To Support Web And Mail?

Mar 13, 2010

I am working on setting up a bind 9 nameserver that will be responsible for serving up DNS records for my internal network and publicly for my web server. My configuration is below:

Firewall Gateway (Ubuntu Server 9.10) ---> switch ---> internal servers (ubuntu server 9.10 and mac os x server)

The internal servers are all on the same subnet, so DNS, web and mail will all be on the same subnet of private IPs. Each internal server is mapped with SNAT to a public IP address. And the DNS server only has port 53 forwarded to it.I am trying to figure out the best way to set up my nameserver so that it can provide records for my internal servers based on private IP addresses, and then provide records to the public for my internal servers based on their public IP addresses. I had a few questions on this:

1) Is this the correct way to think about my setup, or is this typically done in another way?

2) Does anyone have recommendations on the specific configuration I should follow?

3) Are there specific references I should look into as well?

Server :: Setup An Mail Filter For Domain?

Aug 11, 2010

I'm trying to set up an mail filter for our domain. At the moment we're using ClearOS as the filter, works OK but I still get something through and the blacklist and whitelist doesn't seem to work. I was hoping to set up a mail filter on my own, using Spamassassin and/or something else. It seems I have to buy subscription at ClearOS to make it update better or something. I might just do that, it's just tempting to find a way to do it on "my own". I tried to follow these instructions but I don't seem to go anywhere... ...I began with setting up the base server as it is shown there. I've setup quite a few Linux servers, mainly as firewall/gateway kind of things but also some DNS servers, web servers and so on.

I have one mail server and the mail filter is supposed to be on the outside to filter mail before it hits the mail server.
