Thanks for your comments. I think im just too impatient to figure it out because it seems to get more and more confusing as I go. Everytime I find a site with some useful info it assumes you already know this or that which i don't! haha
Does anyone know of a site that walks you though the creation of a mail server? I haven't had much luck on my own.
I did, however find a pretty viable free service that provides email to your visitors via @yoursite.com if anyone is interested (including me haha)
