I want a mailserver on Ubuntu that saves e-mail in the database and uses users in the database to let them login into the POP server and SMTP server. There are also different domains. How can I do this?

Regards, Kevin

You can follow the ISPMail tutorial at even if it was written for Debian Lenny it should work on Ubuntu 10.04.

It explains you how a SMTP server should be configured and how to retrieve emails through IMAP and POP3, you can also use different domains and your users are stored in a MySQL database.
