Serveral ISP in Hong Kong offering UUCP Mail service in very low monthly
charge, e.g. USD20.-/month (or 17 hour connect time). That is very low in
cost and worth for non-profit institution, like our church, to use.
Therefore, I am looking for a stable freeware UNIX to be our mail server
which should be able to handle UUCP mail to exchange mail with ISP.
I don't know much above UNIX/UUCP/Mail/POP3, but understand that they can
run very well and reliable. It would be very helpful if you could let me
have the detail instructions how to setup the FreeBSD 2.1 with UUCP & mail.
Our system is very simple, we expected our mail server could run on our old
386PC with 4MB memory, 100MB HDD and mono VGA monitor (character mode only).
Network connection with 1pc modem only. All user will dial-up to our mail
server via modem. The mail server will dial-up to our ISP to exchange mail
by the same modem telephone line.
One of the advantage of the mail server setup in our church is we could have
setup unlimited user account in our system. Then we could have the same
unlimited mail user account to send/receive mail with Internet! How nice it
is when one old 386 PC, one shared telephone line (share with our fax
machine) and USD20.-/month could serve unlimited mail user!
Your prompt reply is apprieciated.
Very truly yours,
p.s. When you will publish your next version of FreeBSD, after 2.1? Does 2.1
is good enough for our UUCP/Mail server?
