re:perfect setup ubuntu 6.06 - email setup when not using ispconfig
Thanxs for another excellent guide, it really helps beginners like myself.
just a couple of things though:
I descided not to use ispconfig (find doing configuration manually helps me learn linux better) , how do i set up email accounts? are they just system accounts, if yes how do i make them?
Also, in the guide you specify server1.example.com in the postfix configuration, in my situation should it just be example.com (what i'm trying to get at will addresses be in the format email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org when using the format in question)?
What ports need to be forwarded? (80, 993, 995, 443)
help me - please!
really anyone will do?:confused:
I can't find the original thread now, but here is what I did (thanks, Falko):
First you have to tell Postfix to deliver emails to a user's Maildir:
postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
postconf -e 'mailbox_command =' /etc/init.d/postfix restart
postconf -e 'virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable'
postconf -e 'mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names'
/etc/postfix/local-host-names should contain all domains that you want to accept emails for, e.g.:
/etc/postfix/virtusertable looks like this:
Emails for email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com will now arrive in the mailbox of sample_user.
Everytime you change /etc/postfix/virtusertable you have to run the following command:
Now restart Postfix:
You should specify server1.example.com as the instructions state, then configure your mail client to send out mail with the shorter address if this is what you want (firstname.lastname@example.org)
thanks man i'll give it a go
