Just curiously, is there any compelling reason to host your own SMTP server ? There is no need to host your own SMTP server within your premises. You can always colo host one in data centers, or you can also make use of AWS SES as your outgoing SMTP server, or buy a Google App service.

I could be mistaken when you mentioned email server. Are you referring incoming SMTP server for your domain, or are you referring to outgoing SMTP server to send out emails ? I was more referring to outgoing SMTP server in my previous response to you.

However it is common to find incoming and outgoing SMTP servers are hosted under the same MTA and used for dual purpose.

Actually I just want to set up a mail server for own use such as own email account instead of using gmail etc.Didnt know it so complex. Thanks for explaining but I really do not understand the difference between incoming or outgoing smtp server.

Oh yes. Mail workflows are pretty complicated for starters. It involves protocols on domain names, smtp, imap or pop3. You also need to understand various MTA and MSA such as sendmail, postfix, exim, dovecot, courier etc.

Either of those above systems may provide overlapping responsibility in the whole mail workflow.

Basically a simplistic view for your understanding on how email works can be as follows



In between the above diagram, various technologies are at work. Which smtp server for the outgoing mails to be delivered to ? How to resolve the target smtp server for domain name, eg: abc.com

What happens when your incoming smtp server is down ? What happens to mails meant for your domain ? How should you fight spam emails ? Where should you store incoming mails received by the incoming smtp server ? Which system should you use to setup IMAP/POP3 for your email client (aka MUA) to connect to to retrieve email ? How do you provide email accounts in your SMTP server to serve email for your domain ? What if other smtp servers tried to send emails to you for domains not under your charge ? How do you protect your smtp server from been an open smtp server ?

Do you want to employ any antispam/antivirus protection on your incoming smtp server to protect against spam ? What technique would you employ to prefer D/DOS ? What happens to your mails should your email server goes down ?

These are some of the groundworks offered by email services today in the industry. If you want to set up an email server, you need to know all these, or else you are really looking for trouble

That being said, I'm not discouraging from attempting, do try it work if you really want to own your email server, but it's not an easy task. The kind of technologies you will touch on just to get a decent email server running can be very rewarding to your career if you are working in the technological industry.
