Article moved from gentoo-wiki.com

I decided to not 'fix' my article on gentoo-wiki.com but instead decided to move it (with changes) here. I feel it should be more athome here then over at gentoo-wiki. I still think gentoo-wiki provided an excellent service and an excellent site (up-until the first crash even more so), so no hard feelings in that regard. Oliver 13:39, 16. Nov. 2011 (UTC)

We had a virtual mail HOWTO document on the main site, but instead of moving it to the wiki, I decided to link to this article instead. If needed, the (wikified) version of this older guide can be found in my personal dev space. Feel free to pick stuff from it if ever needed. --SwifT (talk) 14:20, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Undone elmar's 'additions'

I ran an undo on on the 'basic setup' section elmar added. Reason is quite simple, elmar simply added a bunch of postfix configs at random in the table of contents as a 'quick start guide' i suppose? When a serious reader should just start with 'chapter 1, the vmail user' and work his way down. Ages ago I had a little intro, that this guide was a big read. It still is, and it should remain as such. Running a mailserver is no simple feat. and the admin should be very well aware of this.

Now, if elmar's additions where useful, in the sense that I forgot to add the info int he appropriate sections, lets please clean those sections up and add it there as needed. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Oliver (talkcontribs) 7 March 2015

About undone

But now there is no section that explains the basic setup of main.cf. How can the reader know how to set this up? Elmar283 (talk) 12:57, 15 January 2016 (UTC) Sure there is, emerge postfix installs your basic main.cf. Going through all the chapters slowly builds up the main.cf. I don't think it will be too helpful to have a 'quick and dirty' bit at the start. So if bits are missing, lets add them to the chapters that are appropiate I think. --Oliver (talk) 15:16, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
