  • Posted May 2, 2014

Hello Team

I have recently configured/installed postfix mail server with ubuntu-12-04 using below link

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-and-setup-postfix-on-ubuntu-12-04

I have also created user account and added it to the /etc/postfix/virtual

like : test@domain.com (where domain is my domain name)

but now when i configure that user in my oultook i m not able to configure it properly.

Let me know what else i need do to configure each of my domain user to outlook.

I have also setup mx record value with my domain name (in hostname filed).

Please help me my requirement is to send/receive email to my domain using outlook client. how can i proceed ?

Hi Patel! <br> <br>On it’s own, postfix simply allows you to sent and receive mail from the server. If you need to access the email with a program like Outlook on your local computer, you’ll need to set up IMAP. I’d suggest using dovecot. There is a tutorial explaining it here: <br> <br>https://digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-configure-a-mail-server-using-postfix-dovecot-mysql-and-spamassasin <br> <br>iRedMail might be a good option for you as it sets up most everything for you as well as providing a web interface.
