Default Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Debian Etch)

I want to congratulate you this best howto. Very good !!!!
I have some questions to ask :
1°- How must I configure the MUA ? What are the parameters for the SMTP Server and for the IMAP/POP3 server ?

2- Have you try to install on this solution Postfixadmin ? If yes, what are the changes I must do ?

3- Which webmail do you recommand to install on this server ?

Thanks a lot for this good howto

You can use any IP address or FQDN that's pointing to your mail server.

This setup doesn't work with Postfixadmin.

I'd try Squirrelmail.

Please send an email first to a new account before you try to fetch mails from it. The necessary directories are created automatically when the first mail arrives.

Did you create these directories manually? They must be created by the system.

Default Some Problems

Hi,

I've some problems during the installation,

first I cannot install the postfix-tls package because I have postifx 2.4.3. I think that should not be a problem because tls is integrated in Version 2.4.3 (?).

During the patch of postfix I use that patch: http://vda.cvs.sourceforge.net/*chec...h?revision=1.1, I think that this is quite good but I can't make the new package because I can't install libpq-dev. The error message during creating the new package:

dpkg-checkbuilddeps: Unmet build dependencies: libpq-dev
dpkg-buildpackage: Build dependencies/conflicts unsatisfied; aborting.

When I try to install libpq-dev, apt-get want's to remove postfix-dev, I think there are some version problems.

When I try to make the package without postfix-dev I get that error:

[...]
find . -type s -print | xargs rm -f
find . -type d -print | xargs chmod 755
find . -type f -print | xargs chmod a+r
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/postfix-2.4.3'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/postfix-2.4.3'
dpatch deapply-all
/usr/bin/dpatch: line 8: set: pipefail: invalid option name
make: *** [unpatch] Fehler 1

So, I hope you can help me.

Maye I can use postfix without the quota patch, I think then I don't need:
postconf -e 'virtual_create_maildirsize = yes'
postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_extended = yes'
postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_limit_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_mailbox_limit_maps.cf'
postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_limit_override = yes'
postconf -e 'virtual_maildir_limit_message = "The user you are trying to reach is over quota."'
postconf -e 'virtual_overquota_bounce = yes'
the $virtual_mailbox_limit_maps in proxy_read_maps and the sql table. Would that be right?

But the quota patch would be very nice, so I hope somebody have a solution for creating the package.

Thx
JeanLuc

Which distribution do you use? Debian Sarge or Etch?
What's in /etc/apt/sources.list?
