Installing Sendmail and pop server on Linux.

1st. Install imap - rpm is the easiest way. Be sure to get the right
build of imap for your server. This installs, imap, pop2 and
pop3.

2. In /etc/mail, edit local-host-names, virtusertable, and access.
Build the .db files for virtusers, and access.
makemap hash access.db < access
makemap hash virtusertable.db < virtusertable

3. Edit the sendmail.mc file. Read carefully and set the variables
for your server. dnl -> is used to comment out a line.
It is wise to make a backup of this file BEFORE you do
any edits. If you make a mistake, it can be hard to find.

A. If you want outside mail, be sure to set this one 'dnl':
dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl

B. This option is ON by default, I recommend commenting this out
to not accept unresolvable domains (less junk mail)
dnl FEATURE(`accept_unresolvable_domains')dnl

4. Build the sendmail.cf file by running the sendmail m4. In your
sendmail.mc file near the top there should be a command you
need to run to make this file. Varies with version.

5. In /etc/xinetd.d directory, edit the ipop3 file. Make sure the
disable line is set to: disable = no - or the pop3 will
not automatically start.

If you need pop3 with SSL support, edit the pop3s file.
Make sure the disable line is set to: disable = no - or the
pop3s will not automatically start.

If you need pop2, edit the ipop2 file. Make sure the disable
line is set to: disable = no - or the pop2 will not
automatically start.

7. Restart services. It should work at this point.
/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart
