The big gorilla is Sendmail, but I'm a big qMail fan. Load qMail up with vPopMail (virtual pop services), mySQL backend, ezl-mlm-idx (mailing list software), and you have a great little mail system. I also run qMailScanner tied into SpamAssassin for flagging spam. I'm going to be adding an IMAP server and run SquirrelMail as the web mail client soon. The install of all that stuff can be a bit daunting, but I found it a great learning experience. Here's some links to get you started: http://cr.yp.to/qmail.html Also www.qmail.org for a ton of related packages http://www.ezmlm.org/ http://inter7.com/vpopmail/ http://www.inter7.com/vqadmin/ http://inter7.com/qmailadmin/ http://qmail-scanner.sourceforge.net/ http://www.spamassassin.org I have a cheesy install doc I use to help me with setup. If you want that I'll send it off line to ya. --- Anthony Baratta President Keyboard Jockeys "Conformity is the refuge of the unimaginative."
