exim right choice?
i currently use a dual boot win98/debian 3.0. Since i'm having so much fun with debian, i am going to put my Suse 7.2 server on debian too.
While i'm doing this, i would like to set up a simple mail retrieving mechanism.
I think exim will do the job fine but i want to be sure :-)
My network is setup like this: the dualboot pc behind the suse 7.2 server which has connection to the internet via cable.
I have 2 mailboxes at my isp, 1 for me and 1 for my wife. So i would like exim to run on my soon-to-be debian server and check the mailbox from me and my wife at my isp's site every x minutes and store the mail locally on my server.
Then i would use Kmail (or another client) to connect to my server and get the mail from there instead of from my isp. Of course, i don't want to retrieve the mail from my wife. Would save me a lot of time since i'm currently subscribed to a couple of debian mailing lists and they are quite busy :-)
When sending mail, my mail client should send it to my server which then would take care of sending it to my isp's pop3 server.
The whole setup would add an extra step: instead of email client - isp it would be email client - local server - isp.
Is a combo of kmail / exim able to do this without to much trouble?
