Webmail access?

    I've setup my macmini server for Mail, DNS, iCal and a few other things, but not for my website (its hosted elsewhere...)

    So, server is called srv1.mydomain.com
    website is at www.mydomain.com
    mail is accessible on srv1.mydomain.com & mail.mydomain.com

    So how would I access webmail? Tried all variations of domain.com/webmail but nothing - am I missing something somewhere?

    Sorry, no. I should've put domainname.com..
    So my mail server hostname is srv1.domainname.com
    My website is www.[I]domainname[/I].com - Not hosted through my server but with a third party...

    I'm using Lion server.

    Thanks :)

    Did you set up an MX record?
    Here is an example.

    Record FQDN Record Type Record Value MX Pref
    mail.mydomain.com A <ip address>
    mydomain.com MX mail.mydomain.com 10

    Hmmm - possible not - that link doesn't seem to be working?
