  1. Hi, I'm a linux newbie and I want to ask how to setup an email server on SUSE linux 10?. In SUSE everything setup for configuration is under control by YAST that is easy but it's difficult for me :D.

    For checking if the mail server is working I try telnet localhost 110 and 143 but can't running. where is the problem? can anybody help... btw I'm sorry for my bad english...

    here I copy my result from telnet localhost 110 and 143 :

    telnet localhost 110 is :
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK POP3 localhost 2004.89 server ready
    user iwan
    -ERR Unknown AUTHORIZATION state command

    and telnet localhost 143 is :
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    * OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS STARTTLS LOGINDISABLED] localhost IMAP4rev1 2004.356 at Fri, 28 Jul 2006 13:33:40 +0700 (WIT)

    Since SuSE 8.1 the distro includes Cyrus imap, and it looks like you have it working enough that it answers you on the proper port. There are specific setup examples in the /usr/share/doc/packages/cyrus-sasl/doc and /usr/share/doc/packages/postfix directories. These should be able to get you well on your way. I'm sure we can help if you have specific issues later.

    ...Have a lot of fun
