IndiMail INSTALLATION STEPS

IndiMail can be installed using the source, RPM or using a YUM repository.

If you have learnt the art of being patient the read the file INSTALL-version. You can read the file INSTALL-RPM-version in case you want to install from RPM (version is the version of IndiMail you want to install).

If you are in a hurry to install and setup IndiMail, download the RPM and read the file Quick-INSTALL-version. You can also install IndiMail in 10 Steps.
