I have found a newer version of the howto:


I am going to email the author to get help on not implementing quotas 
(they caused me grief in the past).  I am also going to ask him about 
dovecot/courier.  And finally about disabling SELinux; what are the 
problems.  I will probably be asking for help here! :)  My limited 
experience with semanage is that it is slooooow for a change.  At least 
the one I make for SSH port.
