    Hello everybody this is my first post on howtoforge. I've been reading for some time and I find it very usefull.

    Anyway my first question is if the server after preforming the perfect setup (ubuntu 6.06) needs more configuration - security and optimization wise?

    I don't need bleeding edge, I only need the software from the "perfect setup" howto + webmail.

    I also wonder if and with what frequency should I update the system or I can set it once and forget it.

    Best regards.

    It's totally up to you. It's a good idea to turn on the ISPConfig firewall after you've installed ISPConfig. Also have a look at some HowtoForge tutorials: and

    It's also totally up to you. You might want to check for updates once a week or so:
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade

    Will istalling and tweaking other parametars of the system affect the ISPConfig configuration and work?

    I would also like to install ClamAV for my mail server - can I just apt-get install clamav? Will that work for this setup?

    It depends on what you want to tweak...

    ISPConfig comes with ClamAV, so there's no need to install a second one.

    What about SpamAssassin? Do I need to set something or it will work just fine the way it is?

    thanks a lot for all the information.

    And set it to:
    discard 3.0

    Works (worked, now ISPConfig is broken...) fine for me!
