Exactly what do you want the mailserver to do? Send mail on behalf of logged-in users? Listen for and process incoming mail? Act as a public mailserver (think stuff like mail.yahoo.com) for everyone to /.?

Have you decided which MTA you want to use? No? Then google for `MTA comparison'--one specific article (`choose the tool for the job') is good (or so I remember it).

Try searching google, LQ and TLDP.

Also, I recommend that you read `Smart Questions' by ESR.

I don't know postfix, so I can't help you with things specific to it.

Btw, how do you know something's screwed? What did you expect, that wasn't delivered? Was there any part of the manual relevant to your main.cf that you didn't understand or was uncertain about?

Hope someone gets around to helping you.
