Simplest Postfix with Courier configuration

Posted by Pavlo Khmel on Tue 20 December 2005

Postfix

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

mydestination = khmel.org
home_mailbox = Maildir/

Create user test:

useradd test

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

Courier

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
