My name is Richard Valk and I’ve started this long time ago to document my experiences in installing and maintaining a mail and web server for multiple domains on a mac platform without resorting to the Mac OS X server installation. The origins of my work are still online, you can find it at where you can see I started in august 2005.

I installed my own server which I use to host websites and email accounts for family and friends. My own current setup consists of a Intel CoreDuo Mac mini hosted at and a Mac mini G4 backup machine at home connected via an ADSL broadband connection.

By the way I do all this next to my normal day job. If you want to know what it is you can read about it on my LinkedIn profile. If you want to link up with me that is fine by me but please tell me where I know you from as I don’t accept all invitations.
