Hey there, me again!
Dear admin sorry for previously hijacking into others posts..
So here it goes, i actually have two issues..
A) i configured iredmail with virtual domain as intradomain.com and the hostname of the server as mail.intrascape.com
Now the thing is i never had a dns record as intrascape.com or a mx record for the mail.
Still it seamlessly detected the hostname and successfully got configured.
So, i logged into roundcube and sent a mail to test user, it was successfully recieved by the test user.
I accessed roundcube with https/serveripaddress/mail.
Also, i would like you to know that this was setup in a dhcp environment.
So to mainly get my basics clear i would like to know how this worked without me configuring a dns server and a mx record.
B) my second doubt relates to my previous post.. I agree using glusterfs to create shared storage for the vmail directory to keep it highly available.
But then it is also mentioned that mysql replication is needed.. Now my question here is suppose all my users are sttic and im never going to add any new users.. So that is maintained by replicating vmail directory.. I know mysql as a backend not only stores the user info but also mail related components... So what are the other factors related to mysql as a backend?
I really appreciate the admin for their activeness on this forum.. Thanx alot in advanve.. Plz help .. Thanx in advance..
Sorry for the use of non technical terms, im 18 and still got a lot to come my way.. Hope my query makes sense..
