Re: [K12OSN] email for each user



I'd recomend getting SME server from www.contribs.org but that is optional.

Here is what you'll need to do. Change your email forwarding for your domain to point to your mail server as the mx record. Then setup all the user accounts and aliases.

If your connection is down email will bounce. But if you can setup a second email server and a backup mx server it can go there instead. I'd recommend that it be hosted on a seperate network if you go that route so they aren't both down.

Can someone please guide me how to set up email addresses for each student and staff member?

At present there is one email address for the school. Any messages addressed to email addresses with @harekrishna.school.nz at the end are delivered to my personal email account and I forward it when necessary to others. I would like to set it up so that every user has and address like user harekrishna school nz <mailto:user harekrishna school nz> I would also like to uses aliases. E.g. messages sent to accounts harekrishna school nz <mailto:accounts harekrishna school nz> would be delivered to bill harekrishna school nz <mailto:bill harekrishna school nz> (our treasurer’s email address.)

Is this easy to do? I guess you just set up POP/smtp services and each user uses evolution or mozilla to access the mail. What I am afraid of is that if we host the mail server at the school and it gets disconnected somehow the mail sent to us during the disconnected time would be lost. Is that what would happen? Is there a way to protect against this?

I would also like to know if it is easy to set up webmail access from home?

Thanks in advance.
