I am trying to find a complete / solid guide on setting up a Postfix server on Ubuntu 11.04 Server.

I want to install using MySQL so I need one that talks about setting up the DB.

Everything I have found is either out of date or is not complete.

Any help would be appreciated.

Update

Would these SQL statments work?

All of the posted postfix guides are awesome, I just need to the SQL table structures.

I was wondering if these would work.

What have you looked at that's out of date (so others won't post links to things you've already tried) –  Bart Silverstrim Jun 16 '11 at 13:55

You can follow this tutorial, although it's for debian but I guess there are not much different.

Look at the server guides at http://help.ubuntu.com to get started. There are guides for setting up a mysql server there, and you may want to add a web server to host phpmyadmin. The postfix section does not talk about using postfix with mysql, but reading it may still be helpful. Most likely, just installing postfix-mysql and answering the questions will be enough to get you started with the email server side of things.

The official postfix web site has extensive documentation. http://www.postfix.org/documentation.html

For a basic configuration tutorial, read the Basic Configuration Readme: http://www.postfix.org/BASIC_CONFIGURATION_README.html

"Setting up the DB" is probably something too specific to be covered in detail in any tutorial. Generally, you set up your mail server to match the DB, not the other way around, because the assumption is that you already have your user accounts (or other relevant info) in your database. In any case, the MySQL Readem here http://www.postfix.org/MYSQL_README.html is going to be of great help to you.
