sudo groupadd -g 5000 vmail
To create a virtual mailbox owner:
sudo useradd -m -u 5000 -g 5000 -s /bin/bash vmail ##### YOU forgot to execute this
sudo vi /etc/postfix/main.cf
Set up Postfix to use virtual mailboxes
Add the following code segment to main.cf
virtual_mailbox_domains = /etc/postfix/vhosts
virtual_mailbox_base = /home/vmail
virtual_mailbox_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/vmaps
virtual_minimum_uid = 1000
virtual_uid_maps = static:5000
virtual_gid_maps = static:5000
For now i dont know much about roundcube, so its better to mark this thread as SOLVED and open a new thread to figure out how to assign password to these email addresses and access them in Roundcube.. someone should have info on that.
meanwhile i will try configuring roundcube on my test machine and will do some R&D on your requirement.
Yeah i thought you have already set it up for dovecot as the link i shared has the info of setting the users and password using dovecot too and the same can be used in Roundcube ...after what i have searched so far about roundcube.
So follow the documentation again for dovecot and you are all set to go to use it for roundcube.
@descendant_command: Thanks for the hint
