    Have a look at the Postfix section on this page: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_4_p4

    It should apply to FC2 as well. Instead of apt-get you must use yum, and instead of installing imap, you install dovecot. This means that instead of running
    apt-get install cyrus-sasl cyrus-sasl-devel cyrus-sasl-gssapi cyrus-sasl-md5 cyrus-sasl-plain postfix imap
    you run
    [B][COLOR="Red"]yum[/COLOR][/B] install cyrus-sasl cyrus-sasl-devel cyrus-sasl-gssapi cyrus-sasl-md5 cyrus-sasl-plain postfix [B][COLOR="Red"]dovecot[/COLOR][/B]

    If you installed Kerio with yum, than yum should automatically remove Kerio when you install Postfix.

    ok I have taken out kerio

    I have webmin installed and it has a postfix gui I was wondering
    if instead of doing as suggested on the command line in your link

    that you gave me a few days ago can I DO the same and set up
    postfix via webmin web interface?

    hotchilli:) :)

    Generally yes. But i guess it wont be easier. Firtst you would have to compare which field in Webmin corresponds to which command, etc..

    If you use a SSH client like putty on windows and connect to your server, you can simply copy the commands from the howto line by line to the putty window. This takes about 2 minutes and you will get less errors.
