Sendmail Setup for Your Home Network
Although alternative programs to Sendmail (Postfix, qmail, etc.) exist, for now Sendmail continues to be the most widely used mail transport agent.
I hope this article helps you to set up your mail server, but like most things on Linux this is not the only approach to this particular problem. I've showed you only what I have done.
Another important thing to remember is that although the setup shown in this article makes the quick setup of a mail server easier, you should complement this with good security measures to keep undesirable visitors away from your network.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
