Postfix,Fetchmail & Procmail

hey Linux Friends,

I am working as system administrator in a Software company.I want to configure a mail server

that is postfix for my office.Currently we are having postmaster as our mail server.
The configuration is like this we have a domain account , for receiving mail we have an account

with an ISP like The postmaster is configured in such a way that it

receives mails from this account and distribute to the users .The users are created on the

postmaster itself or u can say virtual users.There is only one account with ISP.

Now i want to use the same configuration means through one account i want to fetch all mails and

on postfix i want to create user and distribute the mails to all the users if the mail is for


For example there is a user john if there is a mail for ,the postfix should

be able to receive mail for this user and then send it to the correct user.All the accounts will

be created on postfix.

I know that both fetchmailrc and procmailrc files are to be created.

I tried my hands with fetchmail but not able to configure it fully.

Moreover the machine on which i want to configure postfix is having FQDN as
as our local domain is have local DNS server which have entries for the local

hostnames .I want to know whether this configuration of DNS will route the mails to the local

mail server.

If somebody can guide me or send me the configuration files i will be very grateful.

Thanks & Regards
