Hi, recently I decided to rent a dedicated server. It’s running Debian Sarge (I know Virtualmin doesn’t yet support that but I expect it will soon?). The server is “unmanaged” but comes at a relatively very affordable price.
Anyhow, my prior Linux and network/hosting experience is not big at all, but with webmin (and occasionally ssh login) I have found it to be quite easy setting up and configuring apache "virtual servers", MySQL databases, logfiles, etc. - basically everything needed with one significant expecption: email.
I started out installing sendmail, but quickly decided that it was too complicated dealing with, so I made a fresh install of Postfix instead. At least it seems somewhat "friendlier" and I can actually figure out some of it In any case I have gotten it working, though limited in functionality. (My main pupose of renting a dedicated server was that I run a few forums that could need the power. I can send out emails to new users etc., so the basics of Postfix are working).
However, I would like to run a small but “real” mailserver on this Linux server, with a few email addresses for each of the domains on the server, but I have to admit that I’m wondering if all the time I need to spend learning how to correctly and succesfuly set up Postfix, IMAP/POP3, BIND DNS Server etc. will be worth it.
So to cut a long story short, my question simply is whether you think buying and installing Virtualmin would be helpful to me? (I have a feeling it might, hence why I’m writing this post
Sorry about the long post, but I think the background info was necessary.
