I tried installing quite a few times, and ran into a wall everytime.
I am using this guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-iredmail-on-ubuntu-12-04-x64
I have a ubuntu droplet with a LAMP stack. I have a domain, let's say example.com pointing it's DNS records to that droplet.
I would like to setup iRedMail on a separate ubuntu droplet, and then be able to add emails like this:
firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com etc.
During the iRedMail installation, which domain do I specify in this configuration screen? Do I need to create something like mail.example.com? Or can I use example.com?
Also once the installation is done, what DNS records should I add for the example.com domain so that email would work?
