Setting up a new mailserver with MIAB
Just finished setting up a new mailserver using Mail-in-a-box and moved one of my existing domains over to it. After testing it at home on a VM I discovered it was extremely simple compared to doing it all yourself as I’ve done untill now. Moving away from my Mac mini to a VPS first meant setting it up and configuring it all by hand. Mail-in-a-box takes all that away, it just ask for your email adres for a login and thats it.
In 2007 after switch.richard5.net became successful I started this dedicated site for my documentation set and tips & tricks on how to install a fully functioning mail and webserver on your Mac. By this time I had 3 Mac mini’s, one in a datacenter at Macminicolo.net and two at home with different versions of Mac OSX for development and support. When the move from PPC to intel happened I bought another Mac mini and sold the oldest.
I’ve started the blog at switch.richard5.net in 2005 to document my experiences as a switcher from a combination of Windows and Linux to Mac OS X. I had bought one of the first Mac mini’s when OSX was released which promised the usability of Windows and the robustness of a Unix core. Fortunately the switching was quite easy and painless when it concerned applications on the desktop. OS X was far more intuitive then any other OS I’ve ever encountered.
