Install a LAMP and mailman (mailing list) server

mailman

I needed a mail server for a few custom email addresses from several domains that I own. There are some 6 domains and 10 custom email addresses.

Multiple email domains can be hosted on a single mail server. They are called virtual domains. Basically email1@domain1.com and email2@domain2.com can be directed to mailserverdomain.com. Clients from domain1 and domain2 connect for email service to mailserverdomain.com

This configuration moves my email addresses from outlook.office365.com which charges $5.- / month / email account. Totals to saving a sweet $50.- monthly. That’s $600.- a year which I could use for something else.

I begin by installing the Mail Server using this cookbook: LAMP + Mail Server + Web Mail Server then I install mailman using my own cookbook Mailman 2.1.23 Install Instructions.

This results in a Mail Server capable of hosting multiple domains with multiple emails accounts. In fact it is running in my home office on a Raspberry Pi box!

If you want something like this but skip about 200+ lines of instructions, let me know, I’d be happy to help!
