Read the docs at http://www.postfix.org and come back when you have more specific questions about postfix.

If you are new to Postfix, then I would recommend reading the book "Postfix - The definitive guide" by Kyle Dent (O'Reilly). I found (and still find) this book to be an excellent resource.

Configuring Postfix depends a lot on what you want it to do (aside being a a simple MTA of course).

As the previous poster said, -you need to do some reading on postfix first, it will save you a lot of time and frustration in the end.

For security sakes, don't ask members or provide anyone you don't know access to your own servers or machines. That's just a bad idea and you should never do such things.

There apparently is a postfix module for webmin but original link to module no longer exists, all others point to postfix with mysql type installs, perhaps you should start by looking at their documentation and searching a little harder.

Please try searching before asking such vague questions, then come back when you have more specific questions.

I agree, dont ask anyone you dont know to connect to your server for anything for security reasons. You'd be far better off doing some reading, and doing it yourself, or getting someone you know with the relevant skills to help you, or alternatively get a consultant. Besides anyone who connects to your server then has a degree of responsibility for their changes.

I don't use webmin as I`m too much of a purist so cannot answer your question on this I`m afraid.

I doubt that people here will post config files for you, but it won't help you a lot in any case, sice one user's setup may not suit you.

Two thoughts:

one - tell us what you are trying to do - what sort of system you want set up - is it for one domain, multiple virtual domains, etc.

two - your installation should have the basis of main.cf in any case. Depending on your distro, this can me almost complete in it's own right (Redhat for example is more or less complete).

And as suggested, read the stuff at postfix.org. Sorry but can't help on the Norwegian front

edit - what distro are you running?

halvorls,

Seriously, don't make members rewrite tutorials and howto's that already exist. There are plenty of docs and howto's readily available, with examples of the config files. Try to ask more specific questions instead of having member reinvent the wheel just for you.
