Re: How to setup a Linux mail server?

Hi List;

I run around 7-10 laptops & desktops at any given time in my home/home-office
network. All of them are Linux boxes.  I am getting overwhelmed with SPAM, I
use Kmail and spamassassain, we also run thunderbird email.

I'm thinking that the best solution my be to setup my own "internal" mail
server, have the mail server pull all my various email accounts, then use
procmail filtering to eliminate and report on spammers. At that point my
local boxes (or even remote laptops via an ssh tunnel) can get their
respective mail spam free (for the most part).

I have 2 questions.

1) is this a sound plan? or is there a better way to go?

2) If this is a good method then where can I find a good tutorial on how to
setup a Linux mail server and configure it to pull from the various ISP's as
well as a good tutorial on procmail?
