I have to setup mail server with domain abc.com and virtual user in Mysql database ! Now I have my DNS MX record point successfully to my mail server ! I google around ... too many tutorial and article set up mail in different way _ _" : some one use Packet manager, some one build from source and then apply patch for their installation, and the authentication style made me headache!
I really want to build from source for the sake of clarify and here is my question list that I'm now worrying ! Which are mail server component ? Step to setup ?
SMTP : postfix
IMAP/POP3 : dovecot or courier ?
MUA : evolution
How to intergrate mysql and postfix for virtual user ? How to manage virtual user mail (add user, delete user, quota ....) ?
What kind of authentication do I need ? how to use them ? How to use antivirus ?
How to test and troubleshoot mail server ? Application for monitoring mail server ?
What is the big picture of the mail server and its component ?
