Webhotel questions (mailserver, stats...)
I am playing with the idea of starting a webhotel. Though I've always been a Windows guy, about a month ago a friend of mine gave me a copy of Linux Fedora. I installed it on my server, and I was sold. I have thaught myself much Linux since then, and I'm now ready to move on to the next stage.
Now, the biggest challenge for me, is to get a proper mail environment up and running. I would like to offer my clients the possibility to administrate their email accounts online (create new accounts), and access the email accounts online (Squirrel mail perhaps?).
I have done some research on the subject, and what seems to be the best solution, is a mailserver called qmail, which a tool called qmailadmin (I think) can be used with. Is this the way to go?
Can Squirrel mail be used with this server? Does qmail support imap, or just pop3?
Also been doing some research on getting some kind of free tool to show website statistics for each site. Came across a tool called awstats. Tried it, and it lookes good, but maybe there are other, better solutions out there (ones, that make use of the website logfiles)?
Edit: btw, is Fedora the right/best distro anyway for a webserver?
All info much appreciated
Thanks & regards
