Email question from complete beginner..

Hello all, Before I begin, let me tell you that Im a complete beginner with linux server side stuff… I was curious about how it all works, so I got space here so I can play and maybe learn a bit.

Now, I followed all the “initial setup instructions”, and the “additional recommended steps” for centos 7, have the server running with a test index file, have the DNS pointed here, etc. etc. I use zohomail, I have the MX records pointed to their servers… I have not done any type of mail configuration on the server, what do I need in order for emails that come to get relayed through the MX record to Zoho mail…?

I am running centos 7 with Lamp…

Thank you very much for any information or links to reading material you can help with… So far this is quite confusing, but fun!!! Fidel


So it seems like it works anyways… Just sorted some mistakes, received emails forwarded through the site… Is there no email/smtp settings that need to happen on the server.? Thanks
