simple OpenSMTPD/mbox configuration

create user accounts

Create a user account on the mail server for each discrete mailbox. OpenSMTPD will deliver messages to the user account's mbox file at /var/spool/mail/<username>. Multiple SMTP email addresses can be delivered into one mailbox if desired.

# useradd -m -s /bin/bash roger
# useradd -m -s /bin/bash shirley

edit /etc/smtpd/smtpd.conf

A working configuration can be had in as little as five lines!

listen on eth0 hostname myemaildomain.com
table vdoms             "/etc/smtpd/vdoms"
table vusers            "/etc/smtpd/vusers"
accept from any for domain <vdoms> virtual <vusers> deliver to mbox
accept from source { localhost 10.1.1.0/24 } for any relay

/etc/smtpd/vdoms - put one domain per line

personaldomain.org
businessname.com

/etc/smtpd/vusers - map inbound email addresses to local mbox user account names or. inside/outside email addresses. Begin each line with one SMTP address. In the second column put one or more user account names or SMTP addresses. Mix and match as desired.

To have it start on boot

Watch the spice flow!
