Setting up EMail

REVIEW Suppose your local machine is called athens. In /etc/hosts you will see:       athens   localhost

In /etc/hostname you would see:


The host rose ([*]) does not exist outside of my local network.

Externally my email comes through Kayon.Toga@togaware.com.

You can set up your mail in /etc/exim.conf to include:

  qualify_domain = togaware.com qualify_recipient = rose.togaware.com
  local_domains = localhost:rose.togaware.com host_accept_relay =

This will ensure all outgoing mail appears to come from user@togaware.com. Local mail is delivered locally without leaving rose ([*]). All incoming mail is collected by fetchmail, delivered locally by Exim.
