I always stuck with setting up mail server that’s why i haven’t setup any mail servers yet. I want complete and clear tutorial setting up email server including , postfix, dovecote , roundcube.

I always have to ask my clients to get their own mail services because i can’t configure it.

I’ll address these comments in order.

hyvikk - I’d love for us to update our mail server tutorial and add a client component like Roundcube. I’m adding this topic to the backlog.

markjenkins74 - Good call with suggesting a Nextcloud tutorial! We’ll plan to publish a tutorial about the file server by the end of the year.

It would be great to see a complete Nextcloud Tutorial. Including configuring Redis-cache etc.

Optimizing Mysql or Percona server!

Setting up fully functional email server with roundcube or squirrelmail integrated. Both for nginx and apache server on Ubuntu. (I know currently there are some old tutorials on email server which aren’t really efficient. Please consider publishing an updated and more robust tutorial on it).

Hey, good question!

I’m an experienced software developer with skills in UNIX, so it’s software installation, configuration, etc., is trivial to me. But I’m not a security expert. I mean: I know some tricks to drastically minimize the exposure of services to attacks, but these are best practices only.

So, I would like to read articles regarding information security. It’s really really important that we do it right, but proper information about it is really scarce. :-)
