It goes in your domain's zone file, the same place where your "mail IN A"
record would be found. Under Redhat, it would be somewhere under /var/named/.
The fact that you asked the question makes me suspect that you don't actually
have a domain registered, or at least are not providing the authoritative DNS. If
someone else is providing the public DNS for your domain, just tell them what
you need.


1. HELP-HELP-HELP: intranet mail

Hello, I'm coming with some questions... :)

I want to build intranet email. What kind of software that I need?
What is the differ qmail and sendmail?

Now I have a linux redhat 2.0.32 with samba, ip_masq, apache installed
already. How I start to install intranet mail? Please guide me step by

This is my opinion, please correct if i'm wrong. The software that I
will install will provide pop3. And every client in LAN can send email

clients (win95) in the LAN could use email client like eudora or
pegasus for send and receive email. IS IT CORRECT?

Thanks for your response, bye
