Mail server: Postfix, Dovecot, MySQL and RoundCube

We can install and configure a secure mail server to manage your company email based on Postfix email server to send and receive while we will use Dovecot for reading emails and as a common database the MySQL database.

Thus it will be possible to manage multiple domains at the same time and have disk quota management by single box or by domain.

As antivirus the free software ClamAV and as anti spam SpamAssassin joined Amavisd-new.

For the web management of emails the famous free software RoundCube and the configuration of Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) so that the emails do not end up in spam.

If, on the other hand, your needs are those of configuring Postfix only for shipping to your CMS or for your service on a VM or as relayhost or smarthost to your main email domain we are happy to assist you in configuring.

Monitoring

To understand in advance a problem that could occur or in any case to be able to intervene quickly on a malfunction it is necessary to have a monitoring system.

In the simplest cases, the monitoring may just be internal to the server while in all other cases it would be useful to provide a monitoring both inside and outside providing notifications to the administrator.

  • monitoring via cron of the operating system
  • preparation of internal monitoring script
  • monitoring via external service such as Icinga
  • timely intervention to restore the detected problem

Postfix backup or VM data backup

For security reasons and to guarantee the continuity of your services it is necessary to have a backup system that allows you to restore the service at a given time identified as stable and not corrupt.

We can implement the backup in different ways based on the customer’s choice such as:

  • backup to local disk (but in this way we will be at risk operator and virus or hardware problems);
  • remote backup using software like NetBackup or similar;
  • on a cloud space such as Amazon S3 or Glacier or others.
