Hello

I plan to use drupal, and the module OG Mailing List (http://drupal.org/project/og_mailinglist). The module ideally, uses a MTA and recommends EXIM. Though it's possible to use other MTAs. It avoids using the usual imap/pop setup, as the module is triggered by the MTA (see http://drupalcode.org/project/og_mailinglist.git/blob_plain/refs/heads/6.x-1.x:/INSTALL.txt).

I have limited experience of installing MTAs or linux server commands etc. Just wondering if its worth pursuing this without the necessary sys admin skills?

thanks for any advice

It's not possible to run a MTA on our web servers. You might be able to build one and run it, but it won't be able to send or receive mail, because port 25 isn't available for use by non-privileged users.

If OG Mailing List can work with POP/IMAP for incoming mail and sendmail/SMTP for outgoing, then you should be able to set that up on our servers without too much difficulty.
