docker-postfix

run postfix with smtp authentication (sasldb) in a docker container.
TLS and OpenDKIM support are optional.

Requirement

  • Docker 1.0

Installation

  1. Build image

     $ sudo docker pull droptica/postfix
    

Usage

  1. Create postfix container with smtp authentication

     $ sudo docker run -p 25:25 \
             -e maildomain=mail.example.com -e smtp_user=user:pwd \
             --name postfix -d droptica/postfix
     # Set multiple user credentials: -e smtp_user=user1:pwd1,user2:pwd2,...,userN:pwdN
    
  2. Enable OpenDKIM: save your domain key .private in /path/to/domainkeys

     $ sudo docker run -p 25:25 \
             -e maildomain=mail.example.com -e smtp_user=user:pwd \
             -v /path/to/domainkeys:/etc/opendkim/domainkeys \
             --name postfix -d droptica/postfix
    
  3. Enable TLS(587): save your SSL certificates .key and .crt to /path/to/certs

     $ sudo docker run -p 587:587 \
             -e maildomain=mail.example.com -e smtp_user=user:pwd \
             -v /path/to/certs:/etc/postfix/certs \
             --name postfix -d droptica/postfix
    

Note

  • Login credential should be set to (username@mail.example.com, password) in Smtp Client
  • You can assign the port of MTA on the host machine to one other than 25 (postfix how-to)
  • Read the reference below to find out how to generate domain keys and add public key to the domain's DNS records
