Second version and all improved strdoc is now online!

Red Hat Mail Server (Using Postfix and Dovecot)

Submitted by str on Tue, 09/13/2005 - 10:00

Couple of weeks ago, a friend asked me how to setup a Mail Server using his Fedora Core 4. Unfortunately, I got a flu and not able to help him by that time.

Now that I’m feeling better, let me post this quick guide how to set this up.

Note that I’m using CentOS 4.1 (the equivalent of RHEL) in setting this up since I never use FC for any server setup. Nevertheless, I presume this setup will also work in FC4 and to all Red Hat equivalent distro as significant settings are applied to Postfix and Dovecot, not to the OS itself.
