using an email server from an external domain
I have a slackware machine which has preinstalled the sendmail mail server. For this machine I have given a domain name (I have a static IP), so I'm able to administer my email through the UI of webmin, i.e. I can send and receive emails.
However I would like to use it only as an email server, i.e. what I would like to do is
- Conecting to it, by using an email client (e.g. Thundirbird) in order to receive and send emails
- Conecting to it from a web server so a to send new posts etc.
By searching around I found that in order to test the mail server from outside you can use the following series of commands:
telnet mydomain 25 helo mydomain mail from:<useremail_in_my_domain> rcpt to:<useremail_in_external_domain> ...
Here is also the DNS configuration
Name Mode Value Priority domainname A myip 0 *.domainname A myip 0 mail.domainname MX myip 1
Thanks in advance
