multi PPP connection, multi user, NIS and DNS, smail or sendmail?

Post by Jingsong » Fri, 05 Jan 1996 04:00:00


I have two PPP connections, one use NIS, the other uses DNS.
Potentially, the configuration is for multi user.

I can extract mail from server by pop.

Now, I want something fancy, send mail out from home!

The goal:

Suppose user0 login into my home linux as user0, on the NIS domain, I have an

user1 login my home linux as user1, on the NIS domain, he has an account

(1) When connected to NIS domain, I want the output mail has From: (or Replay?)

(2) When connected to DNS domain, I want the output mail has "From:" like

First, is it possible?

Second, which is better, smail or sendmail?

Third, how to configure?

Background, I configured term+smail to send out my mail from home to internet.

1. ? multi home + multi cgi, multi email, multi log, multi support

Is there any httpd package that could do not only multi web-home
setup, but also
        email for multi-doamin-names with their own domain-name;
        store log files for each domain-name in their own location;
        setup cgi-bin for each domain-name to have their own directory;

Does Netscape do that, OpenMarket do that, Or otehrs?
