    Installation of ISPConfig and Postfix seems to be working fine. I'm able to send/receive messages without problems.

    I just wanted to know is there was a utility to see what actual messages are coming in and going out.

    Is there a log file somewhere? If so, is there a way I can look at that file in real time?

    Finally, is there a log of FTP connections, HTTP connections, etc. and some way we can see that log using ISPConfig?

    The logfiles are in the directory /var/log

    To see a log in realtime you can use the command "tail -f " followed by the name of the logfile. To exit press ctrl + c

    Have alook at the different files in /var/log and the subdirectories. There you will find logfiles for all the different services on your server

    Is there a way to see this graphically? Maybe within ISPConfig?

    I am not sure what exactly you want to see, but you can also use webmin with the postfix plugin which has a submodule called "mail queue" - but this is just a graphical frontend for postqueue -p which shows you the messages in the queue. you can read them or flush them (means try and send them immediately) same as postqueue -f ;-))

    I do not recommend you to start and configure postfix with this frontend, as I do not know how it will interact with your manual changes and ispcfg but as I do not have ssh acces to my server from work, I have to use this
