    Seeking advice on setup Evolution


    Hi folks,


    Ubuntu 7.04 desktop


    I'm now configuring Evolution to download mails on my own mail server (under testing). I'll use ISP's mail server sending mails. My mail server has not been fully configured. Now it can receive mails. I haven't setup "send mail" yet. However mails can be sent via telnet on the mail server.


    Mail Server
    OS - Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64
    Postfix 2.3.8
    ethernet IP - 192.168.0.10

    Workstation
    ethernet IP -192.168.0.11


    Please shed me some light on following points to complete "Evolution Setup Assistant" ;

    Receiving Email
    Server Type - POP ?
    Configuration -> Server [What shall I put in this box] ?

    Sending Email
    Server Type - SMTP ?
    Server Configuration -> Server [What shall enter on this box]

    Authentication
    Type - login ??? [Check for Supported Type]


    TIA

    You want to use smtp and the server will be provided by your isp. You will have to find that out on their website.

    Thanks for your advice.


    I have courier-imap installed

    $ apt-cache policy courier-imap
    Code:
    courier-imap:
      Installed: 4.1.1.20060828-5ubuntu1
      Candidate: 4.1.1.20060828-5ubuntu1
      Version table:
     *** 4.1.1.20060828-5ubuntu1 0
            500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com feisty/universe Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

    $ apt-cache pkgnames smtp
    Code:
    smtp-refuser
    smtpd
    smtpguard
    smtpfeed
    Any advice/pointer to get it to work so that I can read/download emails on the mail server from a workstation?


    TIA

    No your isp provides smtp. You don't need to install anything. Just enter the isp's smtp address in evolution.

    Hi Vergil83,


    I think I have to clarify my request. I want the workstation download emails from my mail server which is not fully setup. It can receive emails without problem. To send emails I have to run "telnet" to do the job. I'll get "send mails" setup later. Therefore the IP address should be the ethernet address of the server. It is "192.168.0.10", NOT ISP's IP address.

    This is the first time for me to setup Evolution to fetch and send mails from/via my own mail server. I don't know whether it is the same as communicating ISP's mail server, such as pop.192.168.0.10 and smtp.192.168.0.10. I'm stuck here.
