I am attempting to duplicate a live oscommerce site onto a local virtual machine. I am running ubuntu 12.10 server (through virtualbox).
Can someone point me towards any article, or provide me some advice on how I could achieve the following:
- Setup exim to deliver all outgoing mail locally from php. So any outgoing mail, for example, sent to actual email addresses like "firstname.lastname@example.org" will not be delivered to gmail, instead it will be stopped from leaving the server and be stored (either in an outbox or inbox) on the local server.
- Perhaps have dovecot setup to save all outgoing mail in a mail box, and then serve this mail to any clients that want to connect and download via imap
- Allow me to connect from say thunderbird in my main ubuntu desktop pc (the host of virtual box) and download/read the email.
The use case for this is so that I can monitor all outgoing communication that the system is sending and then confirm that the emails are going out correctly.
