Fedora webmail Install

I am trying to setup a mail server using Fedora and can not find any good instructions to do so. I am not sure how to set up the admin client to add new users and stuff like that I can get to the webmail but can not log in. Is there anywhere on  line that has a set of workin instructions that will not constantly give the failed dependencies message. Or this message Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Which webmail did you installed?  Actually depending on what you have installed, you may just need to add system users.  You can use system-config-user

I think Fedora has got SquirrelMail.  You can find the rpm try to look for something like squirrelmail-xxx.fc4.rpm.  Then install using:

# rpm -Uvh squirrelmail-xxx.fc4.rpm

You will also need things like webservers and mail servers install.  Have you installed Fedora yet?

Hi,

You will have to SSH into your server and type:

adduser test
passwd test

this will create the user test and then you will set a password for test

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at smtpout07-04.prod.mesa1.secureserver.net.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
