Welcome, and a little about myself and this site

About me:

Hi! My name is Dave, and I’m a MDaemonaholic. I’ve been an MDaemon user since the late 90s, MDaemon 2.7, or thereabouts.

I became a fan of MDaemon shortly after the first installation and have been running MDaemon ever since.I started out running DomainPOP on a dialup providing an in-house mail server for my family using a single POP3 mailbox and a few aliases, and now run multiple servers, my primary MDaemon server is located in a professional data center with a dedicated 100Mb ethernet connection to the internet, and is serving several hundred active mailboxes and gateways.

In late-2002 I was offered a contractor position by Alt-N Technologies, Ltd, and currently provide my services working remotely from Calgary AB Canada.

Note that this site something I have built on my own personal time, and is not affiliated with Alt-N Technologies, Ltd.

What I hope for this site:

At a minimum, this site will be a way for me to organize my knowledge about MDaemon and related products, and make that information available to the community. My hope is to create a resource useful to the entire MDaemon community.

I hope that at some point there will be multiple active contributors posting anything from tips to technical articles covering software operation to scripts, external plug-ins or other tools that make administrator’s lives easier.

Why WordPress?

Well, in short, it’s the one of the easiest ready-to-roll content management system.

WordPress allows me to present the information in a way that is, I hope, easily accessible by users, and maintainable by me. It’s also a platform with which I have become familiar, and offers a relatively minimal learning curve for both users and contributors alike.

How can I help?

I’d appreciate any feedback or suggestions on how to improve this site, topics you’d like me to cover, or any other suggestions you may have. Either comment here, or use the feedback link in the top-right corner of the site.

If you’d like to contribute your knowledge, I’d love to hear from you too!

  1. I have used Mdaemon for years. The hardest part is explaining to an ISP how to setup a catchall mailbox.
    I am thinking of moving to Comcast. They said they cannot do what I am asking. Do you have a write-up explaining seting up a catchall mailbox.
    Maybe I am just not good at getting my message across. Do you know that Comcast can or cannot do it?

  2. Not a lot of residential type providers offer catchall services, you’ll probably be best off looking for a hosting company that specifically caters to small businesses.

    Another option, if you’re buying a business level of service that allows you to run servers is to simply host your mail yourself by pointing your MX records directly at your MDaemon server rather than relaying everything through your ISP’s mail server.
