Manual Pages </h1>


<h2> Information for new Postfix users </h2>

<p> New Postfix users should first look at the following introductory
documents.  These introductions are hyperlinked to more advanced
documents and to UNIX-style manual pages. The UNIX-style manual
pages are intended for people who are already familiar with Postfix.


<li> <a href="OVERVIEW.html"> Postfix architecture overview </a>

<li> <a href="BASIC_CONFIGURATION_README.html"> Basic configuration

<li> <a href="DEBUG_README.html"> Trouble shooting </a>

<li> <a href="CONTENT_INSPECTION_README.html"> Content inspection

<li> <a href="SMTPD_ACCESS_README.html">Relay/access control overview

<li> <a href="DATABASE_README.html"> Lookup table overview </a>


<h2> Postfix manual page organization </h2>

<p> Each Postfix manual page is numbered after a section of the
UNIX manual: examples are <a href="mailq.1.html">mailq(1)</a> or <a href="access.5.html">access(5)</a>. Unfortunately,
there is no single universal method to organize manual pages; each
UNIX flavor appears to be different. Postfix documentation assumes
the following convention:  </p>
