I have Postfix installed on an Ubuntu box, but now I need to configure POP3 and SMTP. Is there some guide on how to do this?

@TiZon, this is a Server related question... –  André Aug 16 '11 at 14:52
    
Off topic because Postfix just doesn't do POP3... –  Antoine Benkemoun Aug 16 '11 at 14:53
    
And Postfix already is the SMTP server/client. –  mailq Aug 16 '11 at 15:01

POP3 is not part of postfix. Postfix is an MTA. I suggest you use dovecot as the pop3 server.

There are plenty of guides on the internet
