Hello
I'm looking for an email server solution that I can freely use based on Linux where I can add / remove users through a MySQL database independently from the linux users..

Would you have any suggestions?

MySQL is really needed or LDAP is OK?

Here is a detailed guide, suitable for most major Linux distro.

You can use Squirrelmail as the web interface.

And use PostfixAdmin for the administration interface.

Nopius, as long as it's a separate database from the linux users it should be ok.

eggster34,
I aggree with ppfoong, try his solution first. If it's ok, don't move to any other :)

Really there are many solutions.
I prefer  Sendmail + Cyrus + Cyrus SASL ldapdb + IMP Horde + OpenLDAP
But there is no good step-by-step instruction in one place how to configure it.
It also supports virtual domains either by IP address or by username like user@domain.com
It also doesn't require local usernames.
This could be a start point: http://email.uoa.gr/projects/ 

It's my personal preference, so you should try different solutions and select best suitable.
If scalability is an issue, then Cyrus is quiet good solution (at least it scalable up to 200 000
users and mailboxes may be spread among different machines).
