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?

I don't know whether there's a better way to go but this is what I used to do.

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?

surprisingly enough:

man fetchmail

was enough to get me going on this.
