Hallelujah – I’ve got mail

1 Comment

Three solid days of work have given me the ability to both send and receive email using Courier under Linux. Something that takes literally ten minutes under Windows (well, and a pirated copy of various software programs) finally works under Linux.

I succeeded in getting SpamAssassin working to filter my email, too, thanks to these instructions on installing Courier and SpamAssassin. Many praises to this fella.

    The first time I did a mail server took me 3 days, I decided in my nievity that I was going to learn sendmail’s cf syntax. 2 days later I built Postfix from source and configured it, then installed a binary UW-imapd and that was that.

    cyrus/courier are probably overkill for a single domain, but the time you invested in courier will pay off. I once pulled down courier, compiled it and spent a day just trying to work out what authentication I should use.

    I’d say you did well 😉
