Head_count + 1 (pending exact date -- not sure I can be of much help,
but if a machine is going to be set up as a mailserver, I'd like to
learn anything I can). Have you decided which distro? I've made quite
a few installations of Mandrake 7.2, a few others -- but specialty
things (Apache, email server) would probably need help unless they
worked right out of the box. Oh, and I'v never done hardening beyond
shutting off unneeded services (mostly). Translation -- I'm willing to
try to help, but will probably learn more than I contribute.
