Private mail server with no-ip ddns website

Posted 01 September 2014 - 06:13 AM

Hey there,

I currently have a website hosted in home made server. This website was created on www.no-ip.com and has the url like www.mywebsite.ddns.com

I already open the ports of my router and whenever people enter that URL it automatically "enters" in my computer. It's working fine.

My doubt now is about the mail server. Is it possible to have something like [email protected] free? If so, is a mail server that I should install in my Windows Server 2008? I've installed already the mail server hMailServer but I really don't know the next steps.
Should I open the port SMTP 25 in my router to work? etc


Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Can I run an email server using a free No-IP hostname?

Yes, but most ISPs (Internet Service Providers) block port 25 (mail port) both inbound and outbound. You will need No-IP Reflector to help you get around your ISP for inbound mail and No-IP Alternate-port SMTP can help with outbound email.

If you'd like to use your free hostname with a mail service, we currently provide at least a single MX record under any No-IP hostname. Enter the hostname of your email server in the external mail exchanger field (MX Record) when modifying your host that you wish to accept mail.
