Local mail server?

Hi, I’m wondering if you can use Mail-in-a-box to setup a mail server to work on a local network only. It’s for a practice server for a class, on a very small private network with no internet connection (although I can connect if I need to for downloads, updates, etc.) Because I don’t need webmail, I don’t have a domain and would use a local virtual machine. I’m new to server administration and linux in general, so I was hoping Mail-in-a-box would be helpful.

It will get confused during setup if it does not have an internet connection.

I could do the setup with an Internet connection. Will this work then?

I don’t think it will work at all, sorry. The machine assumes an internet connection for DNS. Details of how you would set up your local network might also come into play.

Well that’s unfortunate. Thanks anyways Josh
