This report gives idea about my work and my conclusion on my work withPostfix.
The documentation about Postfix can be found in www.postfix.org. Inthis site you can find the most helpful information to configure postfix. Butin this report I will give idea about the basic configuration without goingdeep for the moment.
Attached an explanation about how the mail is processed inside thePostfix.
The postfix that come with Redhat 9 is version 1, while a Postfixversion 2 supports a lot more functions, so my work actually is based onPostfix version 1 with its limitation.
First, it is better to build BIND server, I created the master zonelocaldomain.msft owned by my machine linux1.localdomain.msft andafter that I restarted the BIND service (service named restart).
I restarted the Postfix service, by (service postfix restart)
Then, I modified the /etc/postfix/main.cf file to have the initialconfiguration
The myhostname parameter describes the fully-qualified domain nameof themachine running the Postfix system.myhostname = linux1.localdomain.msftThe mydomain parameter specifies the parent domain of $myhostname.mydomain = localdomain.msft
The mynetworks parameter lists all networks that this machinesomehow trusts.Default (Trust SMTP clients in the IP subnetworks that Postfix isconnected to):mynetworks_style = subnetAlternatively, you can specify the mynetworks list by hand, in which casePostfix ignores the mynetworks_style setting.mynetworks = 10.12.0.0/16, 127.0.0.0/8
