Why I created this image: Simple mail server with Docker

Before you open an issue, please have a look this README, the Wiki and Postfix/Dovecot documentation.

Usage

Get latest image

docker pull tvial/docker-mailserver:latest

Create a docker-compose.yml

Adapt this file with your FQDN.

version: '2'

services:
  mail:
    image: tvial/docker-mailserver:latest
    # build: .
    hostname: mail
    domainname: domain.com
    container_name: mail
    ports:
    - "25:25"
    - "143:143"
    - "587:587"
    - "993:993"
    volumes:
    - maildata:/var/mail
    - ./config/:/tmp/docker-mailserver/

volumes:
  maildata:
    driver: local

Create your mail accounts

Don't forget to adapt MAIL_USER and MAIL_PASS to your needs

mkdir -p config
docker run --rm \
  -e MAIL_USER=user1@domain.tld \
  -e MAIL_PASS=mypassword \
  -ti tvial/docker-mailserver:latest \
  /bin/sh -c 'echo "$MAIL_USER|$(doveadm pw -s SHA512-CRYPT -u $MAIL_USER -p $MAIL_PASS)"' >> config/postfix-accounts.cf

Generate DKIM keys

docker run --rm \
  -v "$(pwd)/config":/tmp/docker-mailserver \
  -ti tvial/docker-mailserver:latest generate-dkim-config

Now the keys are generated, you can configure your DNS server by just pasting the content of config/opedkim/keys/domain.tld/mail.txt in your domain.tld.hosts zone.

Start the container

docker-compose up -d mail

You're done!
