    Default Personal Email Address

    Ok is there a good application on or compatable with openSUSE 11.1 that automatically installs a personal email address for you and if not how do I install a personal email address for my host relik.ath.cx to be relik@relik.ath.cx?

    Yes, it's called a mail server or SMTP server.

    If your ISP doesn't mind you running a SMTP server, then sure you can install one. But soon you will find that heaps of infected PCs on the Internet will keep hammering your SMTP server to try send you spam or try to relay spam through your machine. Are you comfortable with that? A business has no choice, they have to keep their mailboxes available and try to filter out the junk mail as best as they can, but do you want this level of traffic, to have a personal mailbox?

    I do want a personal mail address, i'm currently trying to teach
    myself how to run and secure my own server with linux and if you
    could tell me how to create and manage a personal email address
    with relik.ath.cx named relik@relik.ath.cx that would help and be
    really awsome.!!!

    Setting servers is not a beginner's task.

    In this case, it looks like the question is it's own answer
