When I was initially installing RH7.1, I didn't choose SMTP in the firewall setting. Now I am trying to get the IMAP to work on this machine.

What are the best methods to make the email work on this machine?  Thanks.

What are you trying to achieve? Do you want to run an SMTP server and IMAP server that users on other machines can access?

You will have to install SMTP and IMAP to be able to use your RH server as a mail gateway.  SMTP to send the mail, and the IMAP function to be able to receive mail via IMAP or POP3.

Which firewall are you using?  Is it smoothwall or some other firewall app.  Most can be configured via X (for GUI users).  Just download the SMTP and IMAP rpm's from the RH site or from the disk. and run rpm -i <rpm name>.  To verify the install just add a 'v' in there.  eg -iv

To see if an app has been installed you can run rpm -q imap (for example).  It will either say something like:
Package imap is not installed, or, imap-2000c-10

Dont forget to allow each machine you want smtp to send to RELAY and receive.
