Is there a guide anywhere to setting up dovecot to work with postfix and serve
IMAP mail to a client on the same LAN segment? I've only found fragmentary,
outdated guides to certain aspects of the whole setup and I'm left scratching
The first difficulty is knowing what domain names to use. I have a .me.uk
account, which I could assign to my Internet connection and then ask my ISP to
forward its mail to me, or should I only consider the local traffic on the LAN
and use its ID? What names do I put in my self-certified SSL? And where should
all the SSL files go? /etc/postfix, /etc/dovecot or /etc/ssl? I don't intend
to run a web server on the same box, nor to use the postfix box to send
outgoing mail: I just want to fetch my ISP's mail via POP3 (they don't offer
IMAP) and serve it to my workstation via IMAP.
It would be good to start the new year with a working setup.
