Yesterday I tried following a bad guide on how to set up Postfix and Dovecot, in the end it seemed best to me to just uninstall and start over. So I just apt-get purged everything I installed.
Now I have found some great documentation on Postfix + Courier and I would like to start from a clean sheet.
So I started to look around for stuff that might have survived the purge.
/etc/passwd returns a user mail with group mail with an id of 8.
Is this user there on a clean Install or is that something that can be removed.
I already removed /var/mail as I thought it was something from Dovecot but I see now the user mail has /var/mail as a home dir. Should I recreate the homedir? If so, to what should it be chowned an chmodded?
Another option is a complete reinstall but ofcourse I would prefer not to.
