Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 11.04)

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 11.04)

This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota. Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface so that users can read and send emails and change their passwords.

Setting Up A Spam-Proof Home Email Server (The Somewhat Alternate Way) (Debian Squeeze)

Setting Up A Spam-Proof Home Email Server (The Somewhat Alternate Way) (Debian Squeeze)

Email spam is a huge problem. I have found for myself quite a simple solution, however it'll take some time to "migrate" completely over to it. The solution is to create a unique email address everytime I have to give an email address to someone else or to some website to sign up. If I want an account at twitter, I'd use "www.twitter.com@MYDOMAIN.COM". For webbased services, I use the full domain name incl. subdomain (www) on the left of the @ (some poorly designed websites do not recognizes the www. as valid email address, for those I just leave it away).

Virtual Users With Postfix, Dovecot, MySQL, RoundCube, iRedAdmin On Debian 6.0 (Squeeze)

Virtual Users With Postfix, Dovecot, MySQL, RoundCube, iRedAdmin On Debian 6 (Squeeze)

This document describes how to install a Postfix and Dovecot mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. If you prefer to install such a mail server step by step, you can refer to the ISPmail tutorials at workaround.org. Also the Big Picture would help you to easily understand the mail server structure. I believe you at least need one day to have a working mail server that way. If you use the iRedMail script, you only need one minute to get the mail server up and running, and you will have more features (compared to the ISPmail tutorials).

I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota (quota is not built into Postfix by default, I'll show how to patch your Postfix appropriately). Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database (most documents I found were dealing with plain text passwords which is a security risk). In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface so that users can read and send emails and change their passwords.
