Hi, I have Linux Box with Transparent Squid configured and i want to configure sendmail also in it to download all the emails from the remotely hosted mail server to distribute locally to the users. Each user have a email address created in a remote server and similarly i want to create a mail boxes in locally also so that all the emails from the remote server will be pulled into their local boxes and these users can download them from local server and they should also be able to send the emails out from local server.

This is mainly to save the bandwidth and if internet is down atleast local users can still communicate. Please guide me on this
