centOS 6.0, POSTFIX & PHP
I have had a website moved to linode and will be taking over the basic maintenance for it. The site is PHP/MySQL and it needs to send out emails based on customer selections. The function was not working. I couldn't find a doclib on basic email gateway support on CentOS so in the end I just started the POSTFIX service to see what would happen!
To my surprise the email out functions of the website started to work. Subsequently I read the 'Host Email with Postfix, Dovecot and MySQL on CentOS 5' doclib which contains the following statement:
The version of Postfix included in the main CentOS repository does not include support for MySQL.
I didn't follow this instruction but the website now appears to working OK sending out emails.
My first question is: Does the doclib statement only apply to version 5.0 and not 6.0 as I have installed?
Secondly, at some stage I think I may have to set-up a full email server, so can I follow all the actions in the version 5.0 doclib to get it to work on version 6.0?
