Creating email accounts/domains etc...


my current email system is created using PLESK..

if i set up a fresh server.. just redhat in it.. how do i go about creating users with appropriate email accounts base on serveral domains?

is there a document that can point me in the right direction?

Many thanks!

Absolutely:
http://www.postfix.org/docs.html

But more specifically, one for virtual domains:
http://www.firstpr.com.au/web-mail/R...Maildrop-IMAP/

It's dated (RH 7.1 is quite old, what 5 years I think) but will be more RH specific.

woah thanks i will take a look...


but for CLI controls.. say.. i want to control creating users... with email address base on domains etc...

what do I need installed, apache still needed? even though its just for email?
I know how to create user.. with their own home directory.. but not with email etc.. be it forwarding... group email etc...

all i know is must edit virtuser table or something...
is there a more precise documentation on this? cos if i know these commands.. i suppose it helps in kickstarting me doing php programming for a control panel.. to handle email and dns... cos..

right now i am using plesk.. and i feel its an overkill...

hope you guys know what i mean... basically.. just want to know the commands first.. (must know how to do it by hand first at least )

then after that... i suppose its to the links which MasterC provided.. for me to start creating something like this...

many thanks dudes!
