I rent a server couple of month ago, but i never managed to configure correclty postfix.

I explain, i have 4 domains, hosted appart from the dedicaced domain and i want to recieve/send mail to my mail client (thunderbird).

Right now, the only thing which is working is the mail() working (which is sending mail via postfix).

I'm well aware that i need to install + setup roundcube + changing the "mx" (redirecting the IP to my dedicaced server)

But i can't find any comprehensive tutorial to configure postfix with my 4 domains and handle the sending / recieving process

If you can help me, thank you in advance :D

I've done this on a handful of servers, and it makes it very easy to administer and is pretty secure from letting postfix act as an open relay.

Ubuntu and debian are pretty similar. But, HowToForge will have documentation for both of them. Glad you found it - HowToForge is a great resource for a lot of software setups for Linux, too. – James Jul 19 '10 at 1:42
