Las t time i tried hard but and fully success in configuring Postfix mail server on Centos 5.2

Now again i am trying to build Postfix mail server.

Now I am trying below website

and following step by step and let check whether am success or fail again.

My question is this:

1:if there is any good site similar or best then this please mentioned.
2:wget  http://mirrors.rootservices.net/postfix/official/postfix-2.5.5.tar.gz( this command is not running)
3:wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/courier/courier-authlib-0.61.0.tar.bz2(this command is also showing error)
4:-wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/courier/courier-imap-4.4.1.tar.bz2(This command also not working)

Humble request is check and suggest how would be able to download all these.
and also requesting to check whether this site is worth full or not ; if not then mentioned like this where everything should be mentioned step by step.

Sanjeev.

named (BIND) configuration is wrong.
It has nothing to do with postfix.
named-checkconf -z tells what is wrong and you have BIND ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE at distance od internet search.

For troubleshoot:

I have run Successfully 1 command and second command and then 2 files created by epel_

in /etc/yum.repos.d folder.

I deleted both folder for testing because i have already created yum directory in this folder.
after doing this again tried to install squirrelmail but not worked.
then again run 1 command and 2 command but now it is telling
no package available of squirrelmail. Please help me for the same.

yum clean all
yum check-update
you need to have centos repositories as epel pulls its requisites from them (system will become centos 5.10 in the end)

First line of your question says CENTOS 5.2

To get  access to redhat repositories you need to enter your RHN credentials in rhn_register tui/gui (that costs 1 redhat subscription)

go to rhn.redhat.com
log in with your subscription ID, register the system, and "yum install squirrelmail"

sorry, default config for all rpms is 1:1 between rhel and centos.

Postfix versions on both EL5 and EL6 are almost same
On EL5 you might want to disable/remove sendmail to not interfere with your postfix trades

Add redhat optional repository via RHN
Add EPEL repository https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL (rpm --import import key file, rpm --install epel-release.el6.rpm)
then
yum install squirrelmail

You dont have redhat subscription, so you actually dont have what you said you have.
Either convert your system to oracle linux or centos or subscribe it to red hat network. Sorry, but the no-go is at your side in your attitude.

Actually everybody else helped you. I dont get the idea hos potfixadmin or named are relevant to your initial question. If it sounded like "help me to fix misconfigured mail server" all the discussion was in right place
