Generic information about mail servers

Dovecot installation

It's a good idea to start with a simple Dovecot installation to see that everything works. After that you can start changing things one at a time, so if you run into trouble you know immediately where the problem is.

If you're in a hurry and you already know enough about mail servers, QuickConfiguration may be more helpful to you instead.

  1. Installing
  2. Checking where mail is delivered to

  3. Configuring Dovecot

  4. Running Dovecot

  5. Logging

  6. Testing that everything works

  7. Finishing the test installation

Dovecot configuration

HOWTOs, examples and tutorials
