HELP! (Mailservers.)


Can anyone help set up the following mailserver system (I’m copying this directly off a piece of paper Laura handed me yesterday):

Mailsystem using
(secure pop3, IMAP)
Integrated w. virtualmin GPL
on a debian sarge system.

Portions have been haved at/butchered, but productively (i.e., to my knowledge I got things more toward configuration, not less

We can maintain the system after it’s set up, but Laura is saying it’d take her months to a year with a good deal of support and assistance (and she has none at all) to even begin to be able to set it up. We’d want someone capable of working with the entire thing while setting it up for us, and not someone who’d just try to muddle through it, but someone with enough experience not to screw it up.

Hufflepuff. Came from the redwoods. Crochet or otherwise create constantly and compulsively. Write poetry and paint when I can. Developmentally disabled, physically and cognitively disabled. I'm not really part of any online faction or another, even ones that claim me as a member. The thing in the world most important to me is having love and compassion for other people, although I don't always measure up to my own standards there by a longshot. And individual specific actions and situations and contexts matter a lot more to me than broadly-spoken abstract words and ideas about a topic. My father died in 2014 and that has changed my life a lot in ways that are still evolving, but I wear a lot of his clothes and hats every day since he died and have shown no sign of stopping soon.

  1. We’ll be happy to issue a free license of Virtualmin Professional and provide installation service. That’ll handle all of your initial configuration problems for you. And, any problems or questions that come up in the future can be handled through our customer ticket tracker.

    Sign up for an account at and ping me via email with the address you signed up with.

  2. I don’t have specific experience with those systems. I use RedHat, not debian, on a daily basis. But if you can’t find anyone else, I’d be willing to try to figure it out.

  3. Amanda, if that’s not going to work, e-mail me using the address I use here, and I can forward the request to a mailing list that includes some folks who are very clueful on mail configuration. (I just need to know that the request has to go there.)
