Postfix – Dovecot- POP3 – IMAP2009-01-10 at 02:35 pm databasemind
Using postfix as POP3 on Ubuntu
apt-get install postfix
If you are not able to telnet on port 25 to your postfix server
check your /etc/postfix/main.cf and make sure that inet_interfaces is listening on all network interfaces
and not only local by disabling #inet_interfaces = loopback-only or you can remove this line completely.
Installed dovecot (POP3/IMAP) on Ubuntu
apt-get install dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d
Now you should be able to configure youemail client (Thunderbird, Outlook,etc.) with your postfix server
to send and receive email.
In my case I did install postfix and dovecot on my home linux server and configured Thunderbird as mail client to send and receive email messages.
Here is a great reference on how to install Dovecot
