Mailserver Howto (Postfix, Dovecot, Amavis, MySQL)
Yesterday I had the pleasure to setup a mailserver for my private domains. Since we had a very good experience with postfix and dovecot at work, I was looking for a simple tutorial on howto setup postfix for smtp and dovecot for imap (I did some mail server setups with qmail and postfix before and now really prefer postfix).
At first I tried a tutorial at howtoforge, which used LDAP as backend for virtual mailboxes, but it didn’t work with OpenLDAP 2.4, the version Ubuntu Intrepid ships with.
In the end I found the following very good tutorial: Howto: ISP-style Email Server with Debian-Etch and Postfix 2.3
Although the title says it’s for Debian Etch, it worked flawlessly on my Ubuntu Intrepid VM.
