This documentation is for Dovecot v2.x, see wiki1 for v1.x documentation.

Small, simple setup, to serve my family. The same machine runs the windows domains, as well as a few Linux machines, authenticating with NIS, with shared NFS home dir's. It also hosts numerous other functions.

Postfix MTA, and fetchmail fetching most of the external mail. Dovecot is IMAP only, with access externally currently restricted to squirrel mail or Cube mail.
