If there's any interest, I could definitely expand on the 'basic' guide 
with an 'advance' guide for Postfix Virtual Domains (with and without 
LDAP support), Filtering (SpamAssassin + ClamAV) and Dovecot LDAP 
authentication as well. This is the current configuration we use in our 

Currently we run this on CentOS 4 but are in the process of migrating to 
CentOS 5 and I could do it for both. Not sure if dovecot on 5 was 
compiled with LDAP support but I know I had to recompile it on 4 with LDAP.
