14 You can also setup postfix and dovecot to work with virtual users
15 without a DB .. although it is somewhat harder to maintain IMO. postfix
16 reads textfiles easily ... dovecot is also very flexible ... it all
17 depends on what number of users to provide if a no-DB-setup makes sense.
19 Why do you want to avoid it?
21 Your email suggests you are from germany ... I recommend "Das
22 Postfix-Buch" by Peer Heinlein for a start.
24 Nothing gentoo-specific here ... no reason not to use gentoo as a
25 mailserver (I do that for years, although with mysql).
