first, you need to set up authentication for mysql on postfix, and make sure that authentication works (users can login).
next, make sure they can actually access their email (the maildirs you copied).
finally, make sure all the addresses you've received messages at work. qmail uses "-" for extensions by default, and postfix uses "+"; have you changed that?

all the things you used on linux will work on freebsd -- dovecot, squirrelmail, apache, etc.


you really should've to me months ago.

Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

Dear lambda,
As i said i want to switch... I have no issues with Qmail but somehow I dont want to continue with it...I will test FreeBSD+mysql+courrier-imap+postfix on a virtual machine...if everything worked i will implement it on a physical machine. I will let you know if further help needed...Can you refer any howto for it....?

no, i don't use postfix with mysql, so i've never read any howto on that subject.

you should use dovecot instead of courier imap.
