RE: [K12OSN] Postfix Mail Server tutorial



If you follow the tutorial I posted a week or so ago step by step you should
have no problems.  I do remember that when you reach the step of installing
MailScanner you have to cp /var/spool/postfix /var/spool/postfix.in and then
shutdown the postfix service from starting, then change some settings in each
of the new and old main.cf files to reflect the changes.  From then on
MailScanner starts everything.

I have installed 4 servers now with that same tutorial, I skip the last step of
installing mysql for squirrelmail address books.  I also do my standard server
installs with whatever options I want instead of the "Minimal Install" that
they call for.  It works flawless, just make sure to follow every step by the
book.  There are a few steps that are easy to miss if you breeze through the
tutorial so I recommend reading every part carefully and at least twice.

Good Luck
