    I just installed fedora 7 with dovecot. I was going to install ISPConfig to manage virtual domains over a web interface, but it would not install because my fedora server is not a dns server. My DNS comes from a different server.
    Our previous mail server (set up before my time) used qmail+vpopmail+qmailadmin on a gentoo system, but it is horribly outdated, was not kept up before my time and I was looking to replace it.
    What's the best program for this? I wish to be able to log onto the server through a web interface in order to add/delete/manage domains and users.

    RE: Mail Server

    If you are willing to use Ubuntu, it is fairly easy to install and manage using falko's guide.

    To manage the users and domains it uses PHPMyAdmin via the web browser.
    No pretty bells and whistles, but very fast and effective.

    I can usually build one these mail servers from empty hard drive to full server in roughly 2 hours.

    There are also guides for other distro's as well. Look Here:

    All that is required is that BIND is installed - you don't need to run it. :)
