Description

<div class="markdown"><p>Setting up and configuring a mail server is a challenging process, mostly because there are so many different components involved and each component has to be configured to work with the other.</p>
<p>In this series, we will show you how to set up a complete virtual user mail system on a Ubuntu server using the following software packages:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>Postfix</strong> - Mail transfer agent (MTA), a software used to send and receive emails</li>
<li><strong>Dovecot</strong> - Mail delivery agent, for IMAP/ POP3 access, mail delivery, authentication and more</li>
<li><strong>Postfixadmin</strong> - Web interface which enables you to manage mailboxes, virtual domains and aliases.</li>
<li><strong>Nginx</strong> and <strong>PHP</strong> - To access the Postfixadmin interface.</li>
<li><strong>MySQL</strong> - To store info about domains and virtual users.</li>
<li><strong>Rspamd</strong> - Modular and lightweight spam filter. Rspamd can also sign outbound e-mails with DKIM keys. (optional)</li>
<li><strong>Unbound</strong> - A validating, recursive, and caching DNS resolver (optional)</li>
<li><strong>Redis</strong> - As a key-value storage for Rspamd modules. (optional)</li>
<li><strong>Roundcube</strong> - A web based IMAP email client (optional).</li>
</ul>
<p>In the end of this series, you will have a fully functional mail server with web interface, support for virtual users and domains, spam filtering and DKIM, SPF, and DMARC records for better email delivery.</p>
