Mail server

GCatGCat Member

I need to setup a multi-domain mail server for a client, the box is used to send 10-20 emails a day maximum.

Specs:

128 MB RAM

20 GB HDD

1 IPv4

Any tutorial for making it? I've got the domain configured, just need to get the Mail server up and running. I've never setup a Mail server on this low specifications before.

    You'll need more than 128MB RAM, at least 256MB ram (without ClamAV) but mailcow is pretty cool, and easy to setup...

  • Why not just use a 3rd party service for such low volume?

    I've looked at mailinabox/mailcow, but they all have a UI - we have our own server for the UI, so a management panel is useless. Looking just for raw instructions on it.

    @GCat, I have the expertise to do that. I can help you to setup a virtual machine. All domain, mail account, alias are in 3 mysql tables. You add record in these tables to manage your domains, email addresses and alias. Please pm me if you need help.

    You need to have a domain name for the mail, pointing MX to this server. An SSL certificate for the mail domain. You will get encrypted SMTP and IMAP client interfaces.

    It's not the panel that's important, it's reliability. Maintaining high delivery rates is not a set it and forget it operation. What does the UI have to do with anything in this context anyway?

    Solved.

    They also have all the config files you need to set up something backed by a database and code your own ui if you want to :)
