Brand New using Mandrake 9 ...Help?

Hello forum users. I've just installed Mandrake 9 and it installed smoothly. I have setup Smoothwall and Mandrake is running my small network using DCHP and a shared ADSL Internet connection. All networked PC's are online!

Next, I would like to setup a mail server and I see that Postfix is installed. However, I cannot see where to configure it? I have looked at Mandrakes own documentation and they show a screenshot of The Mandrake Control Cretre with an icon SERVERS . I dont have this, yet Postfix IS installed (by default).

Any help appreciated.

In order to see that in your Control Center, you have to use package management to install the Wizards... however, the wizard for Postfix doesn't do a whole lot -- You're better off using webmin (Install it with "Install Packages" if it's not already installed). How to know if it's installed: visit <-- Note the "s" webmin runs SSL by default on Mandrake 9.0
