mailserver setup suggestions please


I would like to use postfix, dovecot, mysql for inbound and outbound mail over two servers I have setup (failover solution).

1. I would like server1 (primary) to send and receive mail and server2 (failover) to also get a copy of all mail(in and out) and take over mail services if server1 has a hardware failure of sometime and is offline for a day or two.

currently I do have heartbeat setup on the servers to manage virtual IP between the boxes.

idea anyone on LQ?

Hi,

Lot's of ideas, and wishes too

Have a look at http://www.howtoforge.com. They have a bunch of easy to follow step by step, copy/paste guides to install and configure just the thing you need. When you have a problem following one of those guides, feel free to post your problem/question here.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

OK, then tell us what you have set up already and where you are having questions, errors or problems. That's when you encounter LQ users at their best.

Kind regards,

Eric
