Ebook: Introducing Fully-Featured Postfix Mail Server Setup Guide for Linux

While some technical authors will advice you against setting up your own mail server due to the so-called complexities it presents (for example, avoiding user abuse in order to stay off blacklists, and dedicating enough time to maintain and monitor it), we are convinced that learning this skill has plenty of advantages as well:

If you happen to work for a web hosting or cloud company that provides email accounts after domain registration, you may be asked to help the customer set up, configure, and monitor his / her email server, and to ‘keep an eye‘ on it to avoid abuse.

By setting up a mail server and configuring desktop and webmail clients to send and receive emails, you will learn by doing the internals of what happens since you compose a message, send it, until it is received and read by the recipient(s).

If you are disciplined enough and can afford the time to tune and monitor your mail server on a daily basis, you will feel confident that your private data and personal information is not being mishandled by a third party or used for advertising purposes – it will remain yours and yours alone.

In order to help you learn how to install a complete mail server (Postfix) in Linux from scratch, we put up an ebook, divided in four chapters, to help you learn the following skills:

  1. Jaysen is correct – the watermarks are annoying at best. Not really fair for a book that’s been purchased.

    But… far more annoying are several mistakes which the authors and experienced user may think trivial, but remember… If I had been using the system since I built my first working one about 15 years ago, I would not need to buy a book.

    Page 14:
    dovecot unix – n n – – pipe
    flags=DRhu user=vmail:vmail argv=/usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver -f ${sender} -d ${recipient}
    “deliver” should be “dovecot-lda”

    When examples of success are given, there should also be examples of failure with “what was done wrong” explanations. For example, using “telnet localhost 110” in my instance does not seem to really connect and it keeps saying: “OK waiting for authentication process to respond..”
    and does nothing.

    While providing set up information for Thunderbird might have been nice before Thunderbird functionally imploded (at lease for myself and my users) now how about a few more examples, for example Outlook and Gmail.

    An e-book that costs as much as a hard copy should be more complete. Perhaps I will re-review it if I ever get it working.

    Page 14: the line “systemctl postfix restart” no longer works (if it ever did) and should be “systemctl restart postfix”.

    • @Don,

      Thanks for review, we will correct all those errors you mentioned and also we will update the book with latest instructions..

  2. A couple of things. Please remove the watermarks on the pages of the purchased ebook. It makes it difficult to read and when I purchase something I do not want to be staring at watermarks on every page. My eyes are drawn to them instead of the actual content.

    I would normally ask for a refund for this but since I enjoy your website and find it highly useful in both my personal and work tasks and projects. I will not be asking for one. I am still happy to support your hard work and documentation. Thank You!

    Also, I have a similar mail server setup that uses PostFixAdmin web GUI to add email accounts rather than phpMyAdmin. I think the book can use some update to include the use of PostFixAdmin. It’s more user friendly than phpMyAdmin.


  3. I don’t have a PayPal account right now, but i am willing to get this book? If I able to get it with other account of my friend and is it downloadable PFD which i can get easily..

    • @Hussain,

      Yes, you can use any PayPal account, once you make payment you will get the PDF version of book to the paypal account used to purchase the book..
