Setting up EMail

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

In /etc/hostname you would see:


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 = qualify_recipient =
  local_domains = host_accept_relay =

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.
