mysql: 4.0.15 standard
This setup is running, but I don't fully understand all the configuration settings have - most of them I copied from somewhere out on the net.
I don't have a problem with removing the sendmail, procmail, and imap to get it to where I want to.
I want to get a mail server up and running that doesn't need to have a system account for every user, and if possible, I'd like the authentication to be done against MySQL.
I did some looking around and have seen PostFix as a replacement to sendmail, and Cyrus IMAP (which requires Cyrus SASL, which somehow should be able to be configured to go against MySQL) instead of the imap that comes with RedHat, but damned if I can find anything that gives me a clear, straight forward installation instructions for getting it to my final state.
Can someone post some links or advice? Maybe a different and easier configuration?
