Setup your MAIL Exchange server with zarafa on CentOS 6 Part 2

Before starting with this post you need to follow the steps which we have followed in the part1

SO Guys lets start with the phase 3 


now starting with the phase 3 lets start with the configurations of postfix. 


Add hostname entries in /etc/hosts file as shown below:


# vi /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1   localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1         localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
192.168.1.101   mail.rathi.com      mail
 I disabled SELinux to reduce complexity in postfix configuration.
If you want to keep SELinux on, enter the following command in Terminal:
# togglesebool httpd_can_network_connect
Allow the Apache default port 80 and port 443 if you are using ssl and 3306 if your mysql is on another server  through your firewall/router:
# vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables
[...]
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
[...]
fowling are optional as they will come in picture if you are using production or more complex setup of more than one server
[...]
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 443-j ACCEPT
[...]

and same true for 3306 as well.


Configuring Postfix
Edit /etc/postfix/main.cf,
# vi /etc/postfix/main.cf
find and edit the following lines:
## Line no 75 - Uncomment and set your mail server FQDN ##
myhostname = mail.rathi.com

## Line 83 - Uncomment and Set domain name ##
mydomain = rathi.com

## Line 99 - Uncomment ##
myorigin = $mydomain

## Line 116 - Set ipv4 ##
inet_interfaces = all

## Line 119 - Change to all ##
inet_protocols = all

## Line 164 - Comment ##

#mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost,

## Line 165 - Uncomment ##\
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain

## Line 419 - Uncomment ##
home_mailbox = Maildir/
Save and exit the file. Start/restart Postfix service now:
# service postfix restart
# chkconfig postfix on
Testing Postfix mail server
First, create a test user called nrathi.
# useradd nrahi
# passwd nrathi
Access the server via Telnet and enter the commands manually shown in red colored text.
# telnet localhost smtp
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mail.rathi.com ESMTP Postfix
ehlo localhost     ## type this command ##
250-mail.rathi.com
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY
250-ETRN
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
250-8BITMIME
250 DSN
mail from:<nrathi>     ## Type this - mail sender address##
250 2.1.0 Ok
rcpt to:<nrathi>     ## Type this - mail receiver address ##
250 2.1.5 Ok

221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.
Now navigate to the user nrathi mail directory and check for the new mail:
ls /home/nrathi/Maildir/new/

Sample output:
1390215275.Vfd00Ie04f8M357080.mail.rathi.com
A new mail is received to the user “nrathi“. To read the mail, enter the following command:
# cat /home/nrathi/Maildir/new/1390215275.Vfd00Ie04f8M357080.mail.rathi.com
Sample output:
Return-Path: <nrathi@rathi.com>

Add the following line at the end.
mailbox_command = /usr/bin/zarafa-dagent “$USER”
Save and close the file. Restart postfix service to take effect the saved changes.
# service postfix restart
