    What Mail Server?


    My server has slowly been improving, running more and more services and now I would like to try and get a mail server running.
    I have seen a number of different ones trying to promote themselves but none have really appealed to me.
    Any suggestions would be most appriciated. The server is running SuSE 9.1, at runlevel 3 with 2.6.5 kernel.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    this may sound like a broken record from me but I like sendmail
    it is usually default and it is dependable
    usually just add local host name and enable relay it just works
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    Thanks for that, I had heard of sendmail quite frequently so I shall go ahead and use that.
