the way i do it is to have MX record point to the mail gate
machine - that causes all the incoming mail to go there. this machine is
aso my outgoing mail gate, my squirrelmail server, dns squid (guard)
server and other whatnots. I suppose you can use fetchmail to get all the
mail for your domain from the isp, that is if you dial up sporadically. if
you are connected to the 'net via a link that mostly stays up, then add
the MX record in the dns server that has the authority for your domain.
As to squirrelmail - i added many plugins, some of them really
necessary, like java freecell, some of them less important ;-) here is
the current list:
Mind you, available plugins are those i have loaded but not moved them to
There is pretty decent writeup on SquirrelMail website on how to
work with plugins. Individual plugins have their own descriptions, some of
them are somewhat lacking in clarity. hope this answers your questions.
