    Thank you for a really useful guide!

    I'm wondering what changes would be needed to use ViMbAdmin(PostfixAdmin replacement) to administrate mail server created in this guide?

    On I've found general instructions for the integration.

    I suppose in ViMbAdmin integration guide that mail store is Maildir or mbox, not the mysql database. Correct?

    Finally, is ISPConfig3 better solution than ViMbAdmin in this case?

    I can't say anything about ViMbAdmin, but ISPConfig won't work with this setup. You must set up your server according to one of these guides:

    Since there's similar guide with PostfixAdmin, do you maybe plan one with ViMbAdmin? I'll be happy to help.

    In ViMbAdmin there are only those MySQL mappings:

    virtual_alias_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/
    virtual_mailbox_domains = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/
    virtual_mailbox_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/

    Database is created during installation, and differs slightly from one in your guide:

    | Tables_in_vimbadmin |
    | admin |
    | alias |
    | config |
    | domain |
    | domain_admin |
    | log |
    | mailbox |
    | token |


    domains -> domain
    forwardings -> alias
    users -> mailbox

    You noted transport table is optional, so we can ignore it.

    For there is 'quota' in mailbox table.

    Looks like it's only mappings file names and postfix configuration part(postconf -e) change needed.

    What do you think?
