    what is the MTA you are using? I'm assuming you want to transfer the mailfolders of your users to your newly setup mail-server. Squirrel mail is just the web interface for your user to access their stored mailbox.



    To assist you with this we need to know the MTA (ie, QMAIL, postfix etc) and the flavor of linux you are using.

The solution i will be posting assumes you already have postfix installed in the new machine and that your new postfix server is able to relay mails. Old configurations has been copied/transported to the new server ( and the only remaining task is to move all the mails to the new postfix server.

copy /home (your maildir) to your new server - check your postfix configuration to verify your maildir

also make sure you have copied

/etc/passwd
/etc/shadow
/etc/group
/etc/gshadow
/var/spool/mail

to your new mail server ( these are your mail related files)

Note: This is assuming you have identical setup you have with your old email server. double check your postfix configuaration before proceeding.

Good Luck

How do I recall a message?


If you are referring to recalling an e-mail message, it will depend on your ISP (most do not support this function). If your computer is going through an Exchange Server to handle your e-mail, then you can recall a message that is on the internal network only. You would go to your sent items in Outlook, open the e-mail you want to recall, click on actions and select recall message and follow the prompts. Otherwise, an e-mail going outside of the organization most likely cannot be recalled.

How to Setup Microsoft Exchange Server


<p>Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 released on September 28, 2003. One of the new features in Exchange Server 2003 is enhanced disaster recovery which allows administrators to bring the server online more quickly. This is done by allowing the server to send and receive mail while the message stores are being recovered from backup. Now newly released version of Exchange server is Exchange 2010 after 2007 version. Exchange server 2010 officially released on 9th November 2009. But here I will discuss about Microsoft Exchange server 2003. In a workstation most of users are use Microsoft Exchange server as mail server.<br /> <p><span><span><b>Requirement of Exchange Server 2003:</b></span></span> <span> </span>Required OS for Exchange Server2003 is Microsoft Server 2oo3. There this Server should be a domain controller. For Exchange 2003 need some protocol like <br /> <p> <br /> <p><span><span><b><span> </span><span> </span></b></span></span>1&gt; asp.net<br /> <p><span> </span><span> </span>2&gt; SMTP<br /> <p><span> </span>3&gt;NMTP<br /> <p><span> </span><span> </span>4&gt;W.W.W<br /> <p> <br> <p>IIS should be install in server . In hardware system should have minimum 256MB of memory<br> <p><span><span><b>Installation of Exchange Server 2003: </b></SPAN></SPAN>There have three steps to install Microsoft Exchange Server 2003.<br> <p><span><span>1&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Preparation of forest<br> <p><span><span>2&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Preparation<span> </SPAN>of domain<br> <p><span><span>3&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Installation<span> </SPAN>of Exchange Server<br> <p>To install Exchange Server you have to install the required protocol first. I have install the windows component such as IIS, ASP.NET, NNTP, W.W.W. from control panel with OS CD. Then I insert the Exchange Server Disk in CD rom drive and start the preparation of forest. I open the disk and run the forest prep from Exchange 2003 deployment tools. It will take several times to complete. After completing the forest prep I have run the Domain prep with the same procedure. The Domain prep will take also lots of time to complete. Then I have installed the exchange server by creating a new exchange organization. The total process also possible to complete from Run with command. The total job takes a huge time almost one hour or more. After installing Exchange Server I have configured it as per direction of the company. I have add users, groups, I create new administrative group. Following this process there I have done the whole job successfully. <br> <p><span></SPAN>

How to Setup Linux Mail Server


<p><span>Email is an important part of any Web site that you create. In a home environment, a free web based email service may be sufficient, but if you are running a business, then a dedicated mail server will be required. <span>A mail server is an application that receives incoming e-mail from local users (people within the same</span><span> </span><span><span>domain)</span> and remote senders and forwards outgoing e-mail for delivery, as example Microsoft</span><span> </span><span><span>Exchange</span>, Gmail,</span><span> </span><span><span>etc.</span></span></span><span> <span> </span></span><span><span>The system uses</span></span><span><span> </span></span><span><span>SMTP </span></span><span><span>(Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) or <span>ESMTP </span>(extended SMTP) for sending e-mail, and either</span></span><span><span> </span></span><span><span>POP3</span></span><span><span> </span></span><span><span>(Post Office Protocol 3) or <span>IMAP</span></span></span><span><span> </span></span><span><span>(Internet Message Access Protocol) for receiving e-mail</span></span><span><span>. </span></span><span><span>In windows forum</span></span><span><span> most of workstations are use Microsoft Exchange server or outlook express.

In Linux configuration of mail server is easy flexible too.</span></span><span></SPAN><br> <p><span><span> </SPAN>In most of Linux workstation RedHat Linux are used for their Server. In RedHat Linux we use sendmail to create a mail server that will relay your mail to a remote user's mailbox or incoming mail to a local mail box. On our RedHat we will find sendmail's configuration file as /etc/sendmail.cf. If you download and compile sendmail you would find it in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf. To configure sendmail you have basically 2 options. Either you edit the sendmail.cf file directly or you create the sendmail.cf from an m4 file such as sendmail.mc. Here to explain the process I will list the steps to produce a custom sendmail.mc file.</SPAN><br> <p><span></SPAN> <br> <p><span><span><b>SendMail Configuration:</b></SPAN></SPAN><span> </SPAN><span><span> </SPAN>In Redhat Linux dovecot and sendmail packages are used as service demon for Mail server. At first I install the available sendmail RPM package by YUM and also the dovecot RPM. After installation first I have edit the sendmail .mc file. After installation of sendmail package it locates as sendmail.mc in /etc/mail. In the sendmail.mc file I have find the line DAEMON_OPTION and edit it with # before the line to uncheck it. Then I find Local Domain and edit it also with the system FQDN. After editing save the sendmail.mc file. After exiting from sendmail.mc I moved this .mc file to sendmail.cf with m4. Here the SendMail configuration is complete. Then I go to the /etc/dovecot.conf file and edit it. I just find the protocol line and uncheck this line. After that I save this .conf file. After all configurations I have start the service demons with chkconfig command and restart the both services. And the mail server was going on swiftly.</SPAN><br> <p><span><span> </SPAN>So it is very easiest job to configure a mail server in RedHat Linux enterprise server.</SPAN>

Download and run the ATF cleaner from here to clear out your temp files and browser cache.
Then go to windows update and make sure you are current with all updates for your system.
If that has no effect reply with info including your OS, your mail program, type of mail server, etc. and exact error message you are getting.
