Question CentOS 6 and Mail

I'm new here and I'd like to start by saying Hi to the community members. I'm hoping one of the experts on this community can provide me with some guidance or assistance with installing and configuring a CentOS 6 server with a mail system.

To be specific, I am seeking a full configuration of postfix using dovecot with virtual mailboxes and aliases which are stored in a MySQL database. Also, I will need to configuration assistance with ClamAV, SpamAssassin and Dovecot (for use with POP3, IMAP inclusive with SSL). I intend on using Maildir storage in a folder within /home/vmail/

I understand this may be a large request and I respect that your time is valuable. Any guidance on how to get started, or at the very least pointed in a direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys, loving the community so far!

I have tried multiple tutorials and guides but all of them are the configuration of postfix + dovecot + mysql for the virtual domains all in one and they are either outdated and never produce any results.

What I'm really looking for is a updated guide that doesn't have tons of errors (I'm force to sift through the comments to find them later). Even more than that I'm looking for a expert who can sit down with me and help me configure the server step by step as well as answer my questions concerns. Not sure if your forum has a place or way to facilitate this type of transaction but I'm willing to pay cash(USD) for the experts time.
