    I am trying to find a very very simple postfix guide that explains the concepts behind the program. Ive tried following the official basic setup but for some reason I still cant manage to get anything to work and I feel that I dont really understand the system.

    Should I use SendMail instead?

    Hi there signature16

    This link might help you with postfix.....

    But what i would recommended is sticking to postfix and look into making sure that you have Dovecot installed...... Also make sure you do a search in the forums for Dovecot and postfix.....

    Also if you prehaps outline your problem with postfix im sure others will love to help you solve the issue you are having...

    I use postfix and dovecot in a production environment of about 150 people. IT works perfectly. Postfix is alot easier to config than sendmail. You only need to change about 4 lines of config to get postfix to relay mail.
    Need any help let me know! I can recomment O'Reillys definitive guide to postfix for any newbie

    Sendmail in the past has had alot of security issues. I am running both sendmail and postfix. On two seperate servers of course. Postfix is alot easier to configure.
