Topic: Existing Email Server

I already have a dovecot and postfix server.  If I wanted to use iredmail to administer it, will I need to completely start over or will it connect to the existing setup?

Re: Existing Email Server

iRedMail needs a clean system, this is well documented:

https://docs.iredmail.org/install.iredm … buntu.html

iRedMail is designed to be deployed on a FRESH server system, which means your server does NOT have mail related components installed, e.g. MySQL, OpenLDAP, Postfix, Dovecot, Amavisd, etc. iRedMail will install and configure them for you automatically. Otherwise it may override your existing files/configurations although it will backup files before modifying, and it may not be working as expected.

Those requirements apply to all distributions which are supported
