[vox-tech] postfix and apache



Hey all,

I downloaded, compiled, and installed PostFix
sucessfully. It seems to be able to send and receive
mail via the "mail" command at the prompt.

Someone mentioned (I think named Jill) that Postfix
can be configured to work with a third-party client
like Outlook. Does anyone know how? Jill mentioned
that it was working fine that way on her system - is
her admin reachable? I searched through my
installation guide, the included documentation, and
the postfix.org website, but I didn't see anything
about this. I understand this means setting up Postfix
to operate as an SMTP/POP3 server, but what's the
method?

I'm also trying to figure out why the program insists
on CC:ing every outgoing message back to the
originating account. Any clue? I looked through the
main.cf file and couldn't find a way to disable this.
Again, this happens when I send mail from the command
prompt, so I'm wondering if it would do the same thing
 

I also have a quick question about Apache. The httpd
daemon is operating on my system and delivers virtual
domain pages properly. However, it won't recognize
www.mydomain.com/~user URL's. Any idea why not? Again,
I couldn't find any help on this.

Thanks, 
Matt
