Hi

First of all m i want to say thanks for SMS .

Unfortunately, i m a real noob on linux systems.
(scuse my englsih i m french Smile )
I manage to set up SMS
i had installed KDE (i m heretic i know :p)
i wanted o use SMS for mail server & web server (including SQL - Apache)

Do we must set up LDAP server for mail server?
where could i find some docs to know how to set up a mail server properly (in fact i don t know if postfix is enought to send/recieve mail)

on remote , i encountered a problem with the certificate - can access but i didn t understand how to fix this problem

if someone could tell me where to find how to / docs to understand to configure the diffrents module installed (on webmin i see a lot of them but don t know what they do or the difference between them like postfix and sendmal)


Thanks for your helps which can help me to use less window

-add: event when configure keyboard in azerty -french- it seems to be in qwerty under KDE , and dind t manage to set it in french maybe package to use :/ if some one know

Hi,
depending on the amount of mail users, you want to configure for mail access, you choose whether to create a mail server with ldap or mysql authentication versus basic shadow authentication.
So if you have less than 100 users you can create unix accounts either with webmin or via "adduser" script in terminal, and disable shell access (/bin/false).
More info on creating users at SMS wiki
http://sms.it-ccs.com/wiki/#LinkTarget_1218
http://sms.it-ccs.com/wiki/#LinkTarget_1734

Postifx is, if not the best, one of the best mailservers, and can handle more than you will ever want in a mail server.
Sendmail is another mailserver, disabled by default in SMS,
/usr/sbin/sendmail it's the binary of mailservers so don't confuse postfix,sendmail with the binary.
Many configurations ask you the path to sendmail and that is
/usr/sbin/sendmail

Mailserver setup requires proper DNS setup and a static IP, dynamic IPs are blacklisted.

Postfix documentation you must read
http://www.postfix.org/documentation.html

There are many guides about postfix + dovecot + sasl in Google, and this forum always help in configuration.

The problem with certificate is that, even if you create a new one, with proper domain like yourserver.com, it will be self signed and for that reason it will be insecure, by third parties.
To fix the security question about self signed certificate you must buy a verified certificate from e.g. verisign or comodo.

To switch to french keyboard in KDE just add it at
Control Center -> Regional & Accessibility> Keyboard Layout

Thanks for your quick help Smile

in my case mailserver is for 10 users max , so LDAP seems not necessary

For the certificate, it doesn t really matter if it unsigned .
Keyboard layout is fix with your help Smile

Maybe you ll have another answer for a "new" problem i encountered :
While i acces for web to webmin (sms local ip has been set in DMZ router) i can t acces with https://ipaddress:10000 : timed out
When i ping mi web ip addres it s ok (also tested with another computer in the dmz + wamp : work normally)

In lan : no problem for accessing webmin

Real thanks for postfix docs link, i m reading it now Smile

Best regards

Sometimes, depending on the aDSL routers, you can't see your web server from the connection you are logged in, you get a "page was reset" error.

Have you try from outside your network (from another aDSL line)?

You can also try to port forward port 10000 to SMS machine in your aDSL router regardless DMZ, in case your router's firewall block it.
