Setting up my own e-mail server - the best and easy way? Virtualmin + Xeams mail server?
I have never hosted e-mail on my webservers, always outsourced that task. For my customers and my main personal e-mail I use Office365 (used to use Myhosting.com Hosted Exchange).
For my also personal e-mail, but not so important (mostly old e-mail accounts, that I still need access to) I have used Godaddy.com. Had(have) an account with 100 e-mail boxes and I have just paid around $2/mo or less than that also. This account expire in three months, and when I was in to renew, I saw that Godaddy has increased the price from $2/mo to $9.99/mo, and I not going to pay $10/mo for that account.
So I have two (or more) questions. I'm thinking about just setting up an VPS/VM on my own servers or Vultr/DO. Just for e-mail. I'm thinking about Virtualmin, since it easy to make backups, and restore on any other VPS/VM if needed.
Never used e-mail in Virtualmin, and don't expect the e-mail server to be any thing more then just standard.
So, can I upgrade the standard e-mail server that Virtualmin uses to etc Xeams mail server?
And do I need anymore then just the standard mail server in Virtualmin? Mostly I will only receive e-mail, but a couple of family members uses the old system with POP3.
And to get mail to the server, all I need to do is to point MX record to the server IP?
Same with POP and SMTP also?
