Simplest Postfix with Courier configuration

Posted on Tue 20 December 2005 by Pavlo Khmel


Main config file /etc/postfix/, with only 2 lines:

mydestination =
home_mailbox = Maildir/

Create user test:

useradd test

Email for test@khmel will be in /var/mail/test.


POP3. Courier will look to /home/test/Maildir to check directories: cur, new, tmp and file courierpop3dsizelist.
Creating directories for user test:

cd /home/test
maildirmake Maildir
chown -R test.test Maildir
