I'm setting up a lan with a 486 connected to a cable modem and the local hub to serve as a masquerading box and provide pop boxes for each local user. The mail feed will come from a remotely hosted domain via smtp. First of all, I need to get the smtp server going and allow it to deliver to local users. Would this be considered virtual hosting since I do not have a domain on th linux machine recieving the mail? Furthermore, what do I set the domain of the linux box to be? And the rest of the computers on the internal network? Then, users need to be able to recieve their mail via the pop protocol. This doesn't seem like too much of a problem, so could anyone focus on the smtp problem?
I can't seem to find a good source of information for qmail, so could someone point me to a good qmail step-by-step guide to such a configuration if you don't want to explain it all for me? I'm still unsure of even the most basic configuration really. The howto didn't seem to be too informative.(nor do the DJB or life with qmail documents) I already know what I need, but not exactly how to get it going. Would anyone be willing to send me their qmail configuration for me to take a look at? Just tell me what it does and I'll adapt with information from the little documentation I've found. Go ahead and e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer.
