This represents an attempt to describe a step by step process to convert OSX Snow Leopard (1.6) into a mail server for a Home user or Small business.
It attempts to gather into one location information which is useful or necessary to accomplish this goal.

See also the [wiki:howto/SetupFetchmail Fetchmail] ->  [wiki:howto/SetupPostfix Postfix] -> [wiki:howto/SetupDovecot Dovecot] 
for additional discussions and perspectives on the process.

A list of Home pages for the various products used can be found at the end of this document:
