Yep I had 2 domains set up. Since my dyndns.org setup seems to be unfunctional, let's update my "osamu.debian.net" to be pointing to people.debian.org.

Let's see who uses this host for BSMTP by "{{{cat /etc/exim/bsmtp}}}" and check their domain set up. (I am not publishing exact content of these and hiding some contents here Try these command yourself.):

}}}

The first one is for one with just fast internet connection without any SMTP mail hosts to get BSMTP service via Debian host. (The second one is for you with fixed IP SMTP mail hosts. Let's leave this for now.)

I will set up "osamu.debian.net" to be BSMTP host.


See following original documents for how exactly to do these.

Describe OsamuAoki here.

Important links

I have been working on several projects. Here are the links.

Services provided for the DD

Debian DNS and BSMTP are lesser known service for the DD but these are quite useful.

Following is not tested contents. This is under contraction.

When we got Debian account as DD, we knew we obtained followings:

  • package upload privilage,
  • a cute mail address like osamu@debian.org on MX=master.debian.org, (You can forward but there is no POP service) and

  • shell accounts on many fast/strange architecture machines.

We have few more less known benefits.

  • Alternative mail account like osamu@people.debian.org on MX=people.debian.org

    • check the latest DNS MX record.
  • Access to the third level domain names *.debian.net
    • Set this via GPG signed mail to changes@db.debian.org

    • virtual domain MX support on Debian host machines.
      • Accessible through SSH/BSMTP on debian hosts.
      • People seem to use people.debian.org machine.
      • The use of this eliminates needs for POP server at Debian or your external mail address.
  • additional mail accounts with suffix such as osamu-list@debian.org and osamu-list@people.debian.org.

    • Check /etc/exim4/* of each host

Example of DNS and BSMTP setup
