I have a problem, I can't find at good tutorial how to setup my mail server. I only can get a user account with the "shortname" and my server's ip, address like nickname@ :/

I need to bind more domains on this mail server and login with order domain names

I hope you can provide information about running a mail server on Mac OS X. Please provide links to any good tutorials or other reference materials.

See Apple's Mail Service Administration as well as their other Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server documentation. Also, has excellent tutorials including one for tuning postfix and one for Making Virtual Mail Users in OS X 10.4/10.5 Server, but the latter hasn't been updated for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server yet and I haven't checked to see if Apple has improved that area of their Mail services. Worth a read though.

You might want to consider getting an Os X Snow Leopard Server

I think it will make your life easier, but if you won't/can't then you must be aware by now that Os X includes a postfix in the default installation. There is a basic tutorial on how to configure it that might be helpful to you.
