Setting up Dovecot and Postfix between a firewall?
Posted on 2009-04-06
Hey I'm trying to setup a mail server between two computers on a network... I'm not even sure how to ask this question so please bear with me... I've got a basic understanding of Dovecot and Postfix, but am not sure I can do the following:
Computer A outside firewall and accesses the outside world, Computer B inside firewall and accesses all the users.
Can I install Postfix on computer A to relay emails to dovecot on computer B? Or should it be vice versa? Or should I have Dovecot on both computers with them talking to one another, then postfix on B?....and the bottomline question... why?
Any help or guidance would be amazing...thanks!
