apt-get install exim4 dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config # choose "internet site;" ln -s /etc/init.d/exim4 /srv/config/init.d/ ln -s ../../../init.d/exim4 /srv/config/this/init.d/S20_exim ln -s ../../../init.d/exim4 /srv/config/this/init.d/K80_exim
As mentioned earlier, the installed Debian system is only set up to handle e-mail local to the system, not for sending mail to others nor for receiving mail from others. [...] If you would like your system to also handle external e-mail, you will need to reconfigure the exim4 package: # dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config
- choose 'internet site; mail is sent and received directly using SMTP'
- list for all incoming 'IP-addresses to listen on for incoming SMTP connections' leaving the box blank
- set an A and MX record on your DNS provider to deliver your mail for your server:
mail.campisano.org. CNAME IN 300 campisano.org campisano.org. MX IN 300 mail.campisano.org
NOTE: edit /etc/default/exim4 if you don't want exim listening on port 25:
