I have read a number guides on setting up a mail server, but none of them seems to work completely.

My Requirements:

  • I want to send and receive mails to and from all domains. (i.e., yahoo,gmail,aol,etc.)
  • I only need real system users.


  • I am running Ubuntu server edition.

Open a terminal and run:

sudo tasksel install mail-server

That will give you a fully functional mail server with sane defaults.

For more information on how to set up a more customized solution, refer to the following resources:
