After the initial problems with dbmail, I’m pleased to report it works! I was able to connect RoundCube to dbmail, and authenticate via ldap. That’s awesome!

mysql-proxy not ready yet?

I planned to try out mysql-proxy right away with dbmail, but it looks like its not ready yet. There is no init script that I can find.

Perdition

This would be a perfect time to give perdition a spin! I would like to be able to route only a few accounts to receive mail for mailboxes stored in dbmail.

To-do: * Setup public smtp server for delivery of low-volume email to dbmail

Note:

Looks like it will be fairly easy to set this up for a single domain - thanks to the flexibility of postfix configuration. Specifically, you can specify the transport for each domain separately.

While it is possible to use ldap, I’m now using the built in sql authentication capabilities of dbmail for testing it out.

Also thanks:
