The other day I needed to transfer a 3.8G file over ftp. The problem was that the ftp server timed out and logged me out when only around a third of the file was transferred.
So I needed to split the file into small chunks and send those. Then you have the problem of sticking all the fragments back together again. Thankfully I’m not on Windows 🙂 I use Linux so this was all done with standard Linux commands.
Where I live, in the country 🙂 I get one or two power fluctuations a month and a power failure two – three times a year for 5 to 30 minutes. So I decided to get a UPS so my Mail server would not go down and possibly get its file system corrupted by the sudden power failure.
In this part we will be adding to the mail server created in Installing A Mailserver on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Part 1, in this part we will be building on that and adding anti-virus and anti-spam software and a tool to greylist emails to cut down on the work our server has to do. This will be added to postfix via amavis-new.
The server called mailserver will end up running the following servers and services. Once all the parts of this series posts are completed.
