Re: Mail server for AmigaOS 3+ ?
Just popping in
Just popping in


Thanks @jabirulo and @cha05e90, not sure why i didn't search for smtpd... duh.

Oh i just realised those daemons won't support SSL/TLS... mmm, that does change things a little...

I really did want to use AmigaOS for the nostalgia factor, but Debian seems a much easier solution.. All the guff is running on a Linux server atm, but when I saw there's apache for Amiga I thought I might use some of my old hardware for a giggle. Am I mad?

Do you think POP3/IMAP/SMTP & Apache all running on a 2000/40 would be too much? It's got about 32-36MB of RAM.

Thanks again guys.

The actual software doesn't bother me, as long as it provides the necessary service.

I can't seem to find a port of qmail for AOS classic either. I doubt that I'd have the skill to perform a port of qmail, sendmail, courier, postfix or any of the various flavours of mail services around (or certainly not within a useful timeframe, anyway).

I'd be prepared to run Linux or AmigaBSD and do it that way in a pinch, but I'd rather do it under 3.5 or similar.

My chances don't seem goo though.


... (this is where i pause for someone to jump in and point me to the AOS Classic packages) ...


thanks in advance

Mail server for AmigaOS 3+ ?

Hi guys,

I've searched high and low and can't seem to find an answer to my question. Hopefully someone here will be able to help.

I'm interested in using an old A2000/x40 as a mail server, with SMTP and pop and/or IMAP. Is there anything around for AOS 3+ ?

I have seen that there is a version of apache floating around, which makes me thing that there'd be a sendmail/postfix equivalent...?

Any takers?

thanks

Yeah I suppose you're right, now that you mention it I have seen conditions on redistribution of old software like you described.

But on the other hand, in many jurisdictions enforceable intellectual property laws can sometimes hinge on whether attempts have been made to protect their rights. If a company no longer exists, and their products are all over the internet with no efforts at enforcing copyright (which in some cases may only require them, for example, being a member of a software foundation that pursues copyright violations) this sometimes leads to their rights no longer being enforceable.

But, hey, I just thought I'd throw it out there to see if anyone knew if some source was floating around. I'm not looking to get my hands on source which falls into a loophole of vacated IP rights, I just thought there might have been some released by old software houses for the nostalgists like ourselves to pore over.

@LiveForIt

Heh, was hoping you wouldn't say that, it's been a long time since I've dabbled in assembly and it all looks a bit mystifying to me now!

I knew that most C64 games were written in assembly, but I thought much of the Amiga stuff would be in something like C - or at least the parts that didn't require speed.

In any event, I know it's not open-source, but I thought if the copyright had been abandoned that the source may be floating around the net somewhere.

Sourcecode for abandonware

Hi guys, I've been lurking here for a couple of years for updates on OS4 but today is my first post.

I don't know if it's a dumb question or not, but I was wondering if sourcecode may be available for some old abandoned titles, and if so where I may be able to get it? I'd hate to think that they were lost to history.

Specifically I'm thinking of some old Microprose titles, but I'd love to take a look at any number of classics.

Thanks
