This article describes how to set up a complete virtual user mail system on an Arch Linux system in the simplest manner possible. However, since a mail system consists of many complex components, quite a bit of configuration will still be necessary. Roughly, the components used in this article are postfix, cyrus, courier, PAM, PostfixAdmin and Roundcube.

In the end, the provided solution will allow you to use the best currently available security mechanisms, you will be able to send mails using SMTP and SMTPS and receive mails using POP3, POP3S, IMAP and IMAPS. Additionally, configuration will be easy thanks to PostfixAdmin and users will be able to login using Roundcube. What a deal!
