Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Anthony Nocentino, enterprise architect and founder of Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, Linux Service Management - Advanced Email Services. Do you manage Linux systems where you and your users need to send and receive email messages? If you do, then this is the course for you. And in this course, we're going to show you how email flows from senders to receivers, then we'll look at how to install and configure the Postfix mail server. We'll also look at how to enable SMTP relay services in your environment and do that securely for your systems. And we'll wrap it up with giving our clients access to their email data with the IMAP server in Dovecot. By the end of this course, you'll know how to install and configure the Postfix mail server, implement a secured SMTP relay service, and also how to install and configure the Dovecot IMAP server. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Linux operating system concepts like logging in and command line basics. You'll also want to be familiar with networking concepts, like IP addressing and routing, and systems concepts, like service management with systemd. I hope you'll join me on this journey in how to enable email messaging in your Linux environment with Linux Service Management - Advanced Email Services.
