I'm trying to install a mail server on my root server. I'm relative new to Linux but not a absolute beginner. There are many many how to's on the internet I tried to get my own mail server with IMAP/SMTP. Also maybe some virus/spam detection.
I've got a Root Server (CentOS 6.4) and a own domain (let us say 'morekings.com').
I want to have some email adresses (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc). Nice would be some kind of encryption (ssl/tsl). But I have no official cert.
Roughly speaking I removed sendmail, installed postfix and cyrus and configured it. Among others for example I tried this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-postfix-on-centos-6
In main.cf of Postfix I used this:
myhostname = mail.morekings.com mydomain = morekings.com
Is this right?
At least I got it to send mails via Thunderbird and send/receive via telnet. But I'm not so sure about that what I'm doing.
Now I'm looking for some guides which will get me working this. Also some guides which get me into this topic.
