comment How can I best secure NFS between an Xen host on Debian and VMs?
Thanks. I think I'll go ahead and set up Kerberos for NFSv4. Relying on IP addresses and hostnames for security just isn't secure enough since a compromised VM could change its address easily.

Any time I've used sshfs it's been pretty slow. I'm considering setting up a Kerberos KDC and using NFSv4 for this as it seems the best option for speed and security.

comment using seperate mail server to send website emails, cannot send email to mailboxes on the same domain
I got Mandrill set up with DKIM and SPF, and it works exactly how I want, and setting up DKIM was easy. Thanks again! I'll definitely find Mandrill useful in the future for other projects.

I've never heard of Mandrill, but it sounds perfect. Thanks! I appreciate your help.

comment using seperate mail server to send website emails, cannot send email to mailboxes on the same domain
Sending without any WordPress SMTP plugin sends mail using an email address set up on my server for login notifications amongst other things. Since the user who will read info's mail isn't myself, they will set their own password, which is why I can't send emails via SMTP from info. I should have explained that before, too.

actually, I think that answer assumes that info is also used on the iRedMail server.

The SMTP plugin is configured with the iRedMail email address, and the MX record points to Namecheap. I asked the same question on iRedMail's forum and got an answer which seems like it will do what I'm after. iredmail.org/forum/post34102.html#p34102. I'm using my iRedMail server so I can do DKIM signing later on, however you're right. There's probably a better way to implement this.

I'm not familiar with postfix transports (I haven't configured iRedMail components that much beyond the default configuration), but I'll have a look at the documentation and see if they do what I need.

Thanks for your reply, however I am using the iRedMail server for no-reply emails because I have an existing iRedMail server and don't want to purchase another mailbox with Namecheap just for no-reply emails. I'm using an SMTP plugin to send emails from the no-reply address, and the iRedMail installation is on a separate server from the website. I should have explained the setup better.
