    MTA Servers


    Hello,

    Can someone recommend a SIMPLE MTA server that can be installed on top of Linux? Please don't suggest using sendmail, postfix, etc.

    What is needed is a product that has all of the needed features and can be easily installed.

    Any help, hints or advice is appreciated.

    TIA

    It won´t get simpler than "ssmtp".
    ssmtp can be used to send mails.
    You cannot receive any.
    Also, there is no feature above the very basics.

    For real usage, I recommend.. postfix, qmail or sendmail
    Sorry, but mail does have a certain complexity and spam/virii/abuse/etc doesnt make it easier.
    So imho, there is no way but the hard way of reading and learning. Once you know the terms and the workflow of the smtp daemons, the config can be done.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Hi and and thanks for the response.

    I found the following:
    Novell: openSUSE 10.3: yast2-mail-plugins

    It seems to be possible to configure a mail server using YAST2.

    Is there any documentation out there on how to do this?

    TIA
