This is your friendly original author speaking.

Hey there, hopefully there are no problems while working down the guide. If there are, feel free to write them down here and I will come to them! However, please *do* try to correct any issues you find in the guide yourself if you can. --Svenstaro 12:39, 19 September 2010 (EDT)

Tested successfully with PostgreSQL

I just installed pam_pgsql instead of pam_mysql.

And obviously replacing "mysql:" with "pgsql:".

The only problem I had is with "authpgsqlrc". It doesn't seem to accept hardcoded values like "5000" or "/home/vmail" so I left the default value for these fields and added them in my table schema with "5000" or "/home/vmail" as the default values.

Did that work? If yes, can you put instructions to the main guide? --Svenstaro 00:52, 29 December 2010 (EST)

Authentified relay?

Now I wonder how to set up STARTTLS/TLS in order to use my SMTP server from any IP using authentified access.

You mean you want to block/allow access based on IPs? Perhaps you should look into using ipchains or some other firewall there. --Svenstaro 00:55, 29 December 2010 (EST)

smtps doesn't work, additional step needed

Thank you for your work!

the postfix version is 2.8.0-2 here, and I followed the steps, got the mail server working successfully, but the smtps function didn't work. I found the solution in SOHO_Postfix#SMTP-AUTH, /etc/postfix/ should be edit.

the line begin with "smtps" is commented default, i uncomment that line and the following two lines, then restart postfix service, problem solved.

Oh, you are correct. It seems this changed in a recent release of this package. I'm changing the main article to reflect this. --Svenstaro 00:29, 11 February 2011 (EST)

imapd.cnf possibly moved

My imapd.cnf was located at /etc/courier-imap/imapd.cnf and not the location specified in the article. I added a small note about this since I don't know if it differs depending on installation. Feel absolutely free to remove my note, change the article to reflect a change in the filesystem or both.
