I'm setting up email on this thing now.
I'll be creating many inboxes for multiple domains, eg:
I started this odyssey with sendmail. What a mess! I couldn't make heads nor tails of it. but then a Linux guru buddy suggested postfix, saying it was much easier & simpler to configure. So I'm going to try postfix instead.
Many of the howto's say that to configure a new account, I need to create a Linux user, like:
#> useradd webmaster
implying that there will be piles of "home" folders:
I don't want to do that.
On my current host (using CPANEL), the mail accounts are all in one user /home/ area, organized like this:
and inside each user directory, I see ./cur, ./new, ./tmp, ./.Drafts, ./.Sent, ./.Trash, etc.
I like that.
How do I set up postfix (or ... something!) so email is organized simply, and easy to configure (I add and remove new mailboxes fairly often)?
Later I'll want to POP and IMAP into this thing from Windows
