I was thinking of installation IMAP and SMTP on my FC4 box. I haven't
used sendmail for anything more than PHP's mail() function but it seems
to be the software of choice?
1) I wanted a rundown of what would I need or maybe a HOWTO? Using
google, I found some HOWTO documentation but they are vague as far as
AUTH and I'm not sure of the terminology used. Maybe someone knows of a
more apropos ( ;-) ) HOWTO?
2) Should I stick with sendmail? Any alternatives? What benefits would
do they offer? How would that change my PHP setup?
3) As far as SMTP and IMAP, I wanted to use username/password AUTH with
some type of encryption (don't want login information to be sent
cleartext) since I will be accessing the servers remotely. Assuming I
stick with (if I could) sendmail, how would I accomplish this?
4) Adding accounts/mailboxes w/o adding users to my linux box. Again,
assuming I stick to sendmail.
