    Hi folks,
    I've used Macs my whole life, done lots of fun stuff but never used OS X Server, as there was no need. Well, now I have email coming in for business, and I would like Mail apps on the employee computers to be able to access and see all that's been sent/received for a certain email address... whether computer 1 sent it or computer 2, ala IMAP style. Can I setup OS X Server to grab email from my webhost, and be the local storage for email to show to Mail clients (because over time I'll probably exceed the storage limit of my webhost) for an IMAP-type setup? Can this be done, and if so, are there any guides somewhere that'd help me wrap my head around this?

    Thanks!

    You will need to configure Fetchmail and a local IMAP server. No need to get OS X Server, you'll be fine with MacPorts. There's no GUI for Fetchmail in OS X Server anyway.
