Setting up new mail server


I want to set up Postfix, Dovecot and MySQL on a Linode CentOS 6 server.

Does the doc "Email with Postfix, Dovecot and MySQL on CentOS 5" work for CentOS 6?

One more question. I have two domains, all pointing to the IP of my Linode server. Can I configure Postfix so and work?

I tried to follow the instructions on the Linode documentation to install postfix, dovecot and mysql. The instructions are for centos 5, I am using centos 6.

I think I am close but it doesn't quite work. There are numerous errors in /var/log/mailllog. I would like to pay someone to help me. I want someone to work with me, not to do the install.

Thank you,
