Learn how to set up, configure, and secure a Linux email server.
- Email is a critical part of modern business. And today many businesses are powered by Linux. That's what this course is all about. Hi, I'm Chaim Krause and I've been advising on technical network matters since the inception of the World Wide Web. In this course I'll demonstrate how to set up and configure a Linux email server. I'll start by setting up services such as, SMTP, Postfix, Dovecot, TLS and SASL. Then I'll explain the role of an SQL database on a Linux email server and demonstrate a database setup in a lab environment.
Finally, I'll discuss some protocols you can use to secure your users and their content against hackers and malicious parties, like SPF, DMARC, and DANE. Open up a CLI window. There's lots to configure ahead.
