Mail Server for Multiple Hosting Clients


I am setting up a web server for the company I work for. We plan to be hosting multiple domains for different companies.

In the standard hosting package, email is almost always included. I have run a PostFix mail server for 1 domain for a few years, but I have never attempted to run multiple domains from the one server.

I have read in other posts about virtual hosts and I tihnk I understand that concept. What I would like to know is how other people in my situation manage their email service?

I run a small hosting business and my mail server has 100 or 200 users (somewhere in there) and I'm running qmail. To get pretty close to what I have, you can refer to the howto in my signature. Course I have a number of additonal things running on there too, but this is the basic setup. Since you mentioned postfix, I'm afraid I may not be able to help much.

Thanks for replying. I am not too attached to postfix. It was just the first one that I tried and got to work!
