Hey again guys,

I know and understand there are topics that draw more interest and attention
than others but I'd really need to insist on a *working*
FreeIPA+Postfix+Dovecto tutorial tested by any members of the community?.

I'd like to deploy this setup for my company so that some 20+ users can
authenticate OTP-style or SSO-style to Services on my current setup which
include Openfire, Asterisk.

I'd really appreciate a bit more attention to something that many users will
like me thank and appreciate.


Do you have any particular problem with how-tos in Mail Services section?

It's a very very valuable effort which has helped me greatly, so I'm not complaining. There's more like misleading information and at some points incomplete.

For instance. I could point out that from the Dovecot part the author is using the "protocols" statement which is now obsolete. (http://www.freeipa.org/page/Dovecot_IMAPS_Integration_with_FreeIPA_using_Single_Sign_On)


   Edit /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf to allow imap


#protocols = imap pop3 lmtp

and replace with

protocols = imap

end quote

Another is where you add the "mailusers" group and the corresponding user, they never mention that you need to get a new ticket with "kinit admin"


   Create new IPA group for mailbox access

From your IPA server, create a new group for your users to store their mailbox

[root@ds01 ~]# ipa group-add
 Group name: mailusers
 Description: Mail User Group
 Added group "mailusers"
 Group name: mailusers
 Description: Mail User Group
 GID: 1427200003
[root@ds01 ~]#

end quote

For many people that'd be no problem as some of the users are more experienced than others, but for me it was apain to try to debug the ticket issue because though I've been a Linux user for a long time am a total n00b when it comes to Kerberos, IPA and LDAP.

I promise that when I get my setup done, I've taken notes that I'll add to the wiki to help others, I've been struggling to get this setup working for two weeks now and the problem is that I need to iumplement this for my company to replace existing email system.

Kind regards.

The wiki is open to anyone with Fedora account so feel free to fix any bugs you find in the how-tos when you try them.

If you encounter some hard problem then please report which versions you use, what you did, what doesn't work etc. so we can help you.

Have a nice day!
