Email Hosting on Mint

Post by BITMINT » Sun Jun 17, 2018 6:25 pm

Greetings All...

I am considering buying the new sexy MintBox Mini 2 Pro when it becomes available, to replace my old MacMini Email Server. Anyone tried / succeeded / failed to run Email Hosting on Mint... ? In particular, I was thinking about "mail-in-a-box" though that may only run on Ubuntu which I DONT want to do... Mint or nothing :)

Appreciate any comments / advice... :)

Thx
David

If it runs on Ubuntu, it's a pretty safe bet that it will run on Mint. There may be exceptions, but I have never heard of any.

Hi BITMINT (David),

Out of curiosity, why would you want to host your own email server?
