I am trying to setup mail server since a long time but as I am new to Linux I have unsuccessfully configured it to the best as I could but now I need assistance.
I have installed it using the links below:
I this to have web console also
- It should use the domain name as mail.risheetech.com for web console & email address should be something like email@example.com
- as every one knows it is a big process to setup an mail server, I am not including everything but very small amount of information, but please feel free to ask for any information that you may need to analyze and help me to resolve it.
below is the result of nmap:
