Looking through all sorts of tutorials I have not yet found one that I can use to set up a simple mail server for non-virtual users. I don't want to support any sort of virtual users, just two real users set up on the machine.

Do you know of any tutorials that explain how to do this?

I have a domain set up where I have access to the DNS settings, and I would like an imap and smtp server running.

That talks about virtual users, and I don't know enough about the configuration files on how to use real users instead – Tom Leese Jun 21 '11 at 13:38
Ok, using that tutorial I finally worked it out, thanks! – Tom Leese Jun 26 '11 at 17:43
