Mail solution for Linux - Postfix

Hi ,

I am a complete newbie to linux, I have been given a job to install a mail solution (postfix if possible) I would like to know how should I go about installing..)

Can any one provide me some steps to go about it..
i have read about postfix and the installation steps, it seems there are many config files in it ? is there any other way or any other emial solution whci i may install.. (the mail solution should also have a webmail access)


thanks !

Actually, while Postfix has many configuration files and can be endlessly configurated, getting a basic Postix MTA (Mail Transport Agent) running is quite easy.

Here is the relevant section of the RHEL 5.4 Deployment Guide which discusses how to setup Postix. RHEL 5.4 Deployment Guide Section 24.3.2

As well as an MTA, you need an MAA (Mail Access Agent) like Dovecot which handles protocols like IMAP, IMAPS, POP3 and POP3S, and an MUA (Mail User Agent) like Evolution.
