How is this web site related to iRedMail?
Running a mail system goes beyond installation. Like every service on a server things can go wrong or it must be extended. In both cases the administrator needs a deep knowledge how things work. Which software components are used, how do they interact with each other, how can we debug, start or stop them?
We are using postfix for more than 10 years, it's time for a replacement. In the open source world there are many choices and guidelines how to build your service. This makes it difficult to decide which is the best for your needs. On the other hand it's time consuming.
We decided to give iRedMail a try. Installation is easy and not part of this documentation. What we are missing is a real documenation how things work. And that's why we fill the gap with this documentation in the hope it helps the community.
Our main focus is this (hopefully) easy to understand documentation. This is not the place for support. Please ask for help in official iRedMail support forum, thanks.
