Unhappy postfix + mysql compilation

Hi, I'm new to linux and Fedora.
I'm trying to configure an intranet mail server using postfix + mysql.
All the howto and documentation I've read told me I must compile postfix using a sentece like this:
> make -f Makefile.init makefiles \
>'CCARGS=-DHAS_MYSQL -I/usr/local/mysql/include' \ ... etc

where /usr/local is the place where mysql headers are.

The problem is I've installed mysql from rpms and cannot find such a directory 'mysql/include'

Any clue? Thank you

(sorry about my english, my lack of it)

have u installed mysql-devel packets? im not sure but as i remember mysql-devel is neceesary.

u dont have to use postfix.. u may prefer qmail. it is faster and more secure than sendmail and postfix. u can get src.rpm's of qmail at if u want to compile from source visit

i hope i could help u
