The following might seem obvious for some of you but I felt the need to publish it as it took me ages to get exim4 and Outlook 2003 to work together with one of the domains I’ve just bought. More here
In brief, I’ve bought a new domain (call it example.com) and I went this time for a proper dedicated hosting (rather than shared hosting) — which meant I had a physical machine that I had to administer myself. I’ve chosen Debian Linux as the OS for it — for various reasons that are outside the scope of this post. I’ve chosen exim4 (more specifically exim4-daemon-heavy) as my MTA and decided to go for courier-imap (over SSL) to read emails.
