[rant]I just typed for 15 minutes and I got prompted to log in when I tried to submit it. And no goin back :( [/rant]

Sorry that just made me mad. Anyhoo here is my bother. Im my networking class in college we have finally dropped the book work and got into something in the real life area.

My group and I are implementing an Email server but im kinda hung up on the software part. I tried researching some basic ideas of creating an email server but everything I find seems to be tips and tricks for people who already have their servers running. This is new to all of us in the group and we are pretty much on our own to do this other than the instrutctor buying parts we need so im just looking for some advice to get us going.

We will be building a mid grade system for the server because it will only be used as a server for this project. We will be registering a domian name in a week or so when we get a little more accomplished. I was planning on using Windows 2000 Server for the OS. But the part im not sure about is the actual email software. I believe I saw quite a few different programs but im just not sure which one would be a good idea to use. I am wondering if anyone could give me an idea of what I should heading towards and if I would be correct in saying this would be all I need to the the mail server up and running? (along with a lot of configuration)

Thanks if anyone could direct me.

Thanks for the help

Well I believe we will be going with MSoft Exchange. It turns out my instructor already has it available and he wants us to work with some other things in it.

Anyone up for another question :bandit:

Is there a way I can find out local DNS servers around my area? I have one at my school but I believe I need at least one more a little farther away.

The DNS servers are for registering the domain name. I only need one but my instructor told me to get two. I just didnt know how to find out another one around here, but I think I got it now. Thanks for the help, even though my question sucked :angel:
