Introduction to Postfix

The Postfix package contains a Mail Transport Agent.

Project Homepage: http://www.postfix.org/

Dependencies

Optional

Creating the Postfix User & Group

groupadd -g 33 postfix &&
groupadd -g 34 postdrop &&
useradd -c "Postfix Daemon User" -d /dev/null -g postfix \
-s /bin/false -u 33 postfix &&
chown -v postfix:postfix /var/mail

Non-Multilib

To build postfix we need to build the makefiles. Use the following commands to create the appropriate CCARGS and AUXLIBS variables:

export CCARGS="-DDEF_DAEMON_DIR=\\\"/usr/lib/postfix\\\" \
-DDEF_MANPAGE_DIR=\\\"/usr/share/man\\\" \
-DDEF_HTML_DIR=\\\"/usr/share/doc/postfix-2.5.10/html\\\" \
-DDEF_README_DIR=\\\"/usr/share/doc/postfix-2.5.10/README\\\""
export AUXLIBS=""

PCRE Support:

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DHAS_PCRE -I/usr/include"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} -L/usr/lib -lpcre"

TLS Authentication

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DUSE_TLS -I/usr/include/openssl"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} -L/usr/lib -lssl -lcrypto"

To use TLS you will also need CyrusSASL

Cyrus-SASL

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DUSE_SASL_AUTH -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL -I/usr/include/sasl"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} -L/usr/lib -lsasl2"

OpenLDAP

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -I/usr/include -DHAS_LDAP"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} -L/usr/lib -lldap -llber"

MySQL

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DHAS_MYSQL -I/usr/include/mysql"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} -L/usr/lib -lmysqlclient -lz -lm"

PostgreSQL

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DHAS_PGSQL -I/usr/include/postgresql"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} -L/usr/lib -lpq -lz -lm"

TinyCDB

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DHAS_CDB"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} </path/to/CDB>/libcdb.a"

Create the Makefiles and compile the package:

make makefiles CCARGS="${CCARGS}" AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS}" &&
make

Install the package

sh postfix-install -non-interactive

Multilib

To build postfix we need to build the makefiles. Use the following commands to create the appropriate CCARGS and AUXLIBS variables:

export CCARGS="-DDEF_DAEMON_DIR=\\\"/usr/lib64/postfix\\\" \
-DDEF_MANPAGE_DIR=\\\"/usr/share/man\\\" \
-DDEF_HTML_DIR=\\\"/usr/share/doc/postfix-2.5.10/html\\\" \
-DDEF_README_DIR=\\\"/usr/share/doc/postfix-2.5.10/README\\\""
export AUXLIBS=""

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DHAS_PCRE -I/usr/include"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} -L/usr/lib64 -lpcre"

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DUSE_TLS -I/usr/include/openssl"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} -L/usr/lib64 -lssl -lcrypto"

TinyCDB

export CCARGS="${CCARGS} -DHAS_CDB"
export AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS} </path/to/CDB>/libcdb.a"

Create the Makefiles and compile the package:

make makefiles CCARGS="-m64 ${CCARGS}" AUXLIBS="${AUXLIBS}" &&
make

Install the package

sh postfix-install -non-interactive
