Every guide I have ever followed never worked and I never knew why.
This book explains it very well and it just works. Another thing that is rare in Open Source books is that it is up-to-date.
The setup of the server was not without issues but due to the detailed manual testing steps documented in the book I was able to actually understand and solve the problems I had myself.
I also like the fact the book acknowledges that almost all the postfix/dovecot guides out there are incomplete/outdated or just plain wrong - which confirmed years of personal experience.
At one point I even got stuck and I emailed the author - he kindly took time to help me and resolved my problem for me - all round probably best money I've spent in 20 years on a IT book.
Only reason I don't give this book five stars is that I felt it felt short when it come to group mailboxes and aliases. That discussion was unfortunately left out in its entirety. Perhaps for a reason, when I later looked it up on the net it seems that consensus says that mailing lists and group mail-boxes should be handled by Postfix, but if so, it should at least merit a mention in this authoritative guide on Dovecot. With that only exception Dovecot is a great book that I am sure you will appreciate. I highly recommend it.
