Setting up EMail


Suppose your local machine is called athens. In /etc/hosts you will see:



127.0.0.1 ������athens   localhost

In /etc/hostname you would see:



athens

The host rose ([*]) does not exist outside of my local network.

Externally my email comes through [email protected]

You can set up your mail in /etc/exim.conf to include:



  qualify_domain = togaware.com qualify_recipient = rose.togaware.com
  local_domains = localhost:rose.togaware.com host_accept_relay =
  localhost

This will ensure all outgoing mail appears to come from [email protected] Local mail is delivered locally without leaving rose ([*]). All incoming mail is collected by fetchmail, delivered locally by Exim.
