Postfix questions


I have recently installed postfix server and have some questions about it:

1- How can I secure the relay on my server so I can send emails even if I'm not on the same LAN as my server?

2- What do you recommend as add-on server that would do pop3, imap and, optionnally, calendar?

My configuration is a Debian server with postfix, postfix uses system accounts, no mysql database is installed.

I tried installing squirrelmail but it won't work, which brings me to the 3d question, how do I remove squirrelmail?

1 - what are your other trusted source addresses? if it's still local on a different subnet or something, then just expand the my_networks options, e.g. from to if it's unknown remote locations, possibly dynamic, then you'd probably want to look at smtp authentication.

2 - dovecot. no idea about calendars though, clearly a mail protocol daemon should never have anything to do with calendars at all.

3 - to directly remove it, just delete the directory on the web server. there may be package management around that but i assume there isn't otherwise you'd have mentioned it.

squirrelmail is very easy to install, esp with postfix / dovecot. there are many many docs about via google. it is a pretty duff webmail solution though... horde/imp is *MUCH* *MUCH* better, but harder to get fully working.
