My MailServer

Since ClarkConnect Community Edition is only gave 10 Mailboxes, so i have to learn how to make a Mail Server by myself.

I built this Mail Server based on these links :

I lost my Mysql password …but it can be recovered by doing ;

  1. Open Terminal then type sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
  2. then run : mysqld_safe –skip-grant-tables &
  3. you will be able to login as root with no password by : mysql -uroot mysql
  4. Then run : UPDATE user SET password=PASSWORD(“abcd”) WHERE user=”root”; ( abcd means your new password for root )
  5. then run : FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
  6. Now you can login by : mysql -uroot -pabcd mysql

How to install Squirrelmail plugins ?

  1. Go to Squirrel plugins site to pick a plugins
  2. Download it
  3. Extract it to /usr/share/squirrelmail/plugins
  4. Open terminal, run : sudo squirrelmail-configure
  5. Select option 8
  6. Select the number of plugins that you wanted to run
  7. type Q to quit ( save before you quit by press S )

Next, i add these lines into /etc/postfix/

  • mailbox_size_limit = 51200000  { mailbox size approx = 50MB }
