    Hosting From iBook G4
    Hi All!

    I just need to ask quick question, hope I'll get some useful replies from all you experts over here.

    Ok my problem is and what I want is - I have a domain name but I my site is not yet live, but still i use my domain name for mailing for example - abc@xyz.com and now I use this with the help of free hotmail services where you can send and receive mails on ur domain id. But the problem over there is anytime when you are switching to paid mail service you will have to forward each and every mail from there.

    So I am looking for some software with which we can have our mails send and recieve from our iBook or ne such services where we can configure our mails to come to entourage or thunderbird.

    • I have heard we can host our site from .mac account, is it True? if Yes, then how?


    • I have a software called Rapid SMTP. Have anyone heard of it? If Yes, then how can that be useful for sending and receiving mails from your domain.


    Thanks

    So you basically want to run a mail server off of your iBook?

    I'd check out this tool:

    This tool looks useful, Thanks.

    But this is still paid version where you have to buy the Postfix Enabler which will cost you 9.99$.
    Is there any Free service?

    Thanks,

    Sorry, none that I know of.

    You can just set up Postfix manually of course, but since I don't know how to do that and I'm assuming you don't either, I'd personally just pay the nominal 10$ fee.

    I think you can try it first anyway... or try using a different service instead (google offers something similar to hotmail's functionality for free).

    I have seen Hotmail's and I am using that currently, but can you please tell me which is Google's hosted email service?

    Thanks,

    Why don't you try entering "google's hosted email service" into um, I don't know... Google?

    Let's see:
    http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=google's+hosted+emai l+service&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    Oh look, first link: https://www.google.com/hosted


    But it looks like it's still in beta...
