What is Ratuus?

RATUUS is an easy to use, web based system for administration of POSTFIX virtual domains and users.

Sounds good, but what does it really mean?

Postfix mail server is able to work with non-system users, users which are not known to the operating system. This functionality is very useful since it gives you possibility to use one mail server for multiple domains without worrying that usernames will overlap. Like this you can have address info@domain1.com and also info@domain2.com and they can all point to different mailboxes. These kind of users are usually stored in some kind of a database, with MySQL database being most commonly used.

And this is where RATUUS comes into play - it provides user friendly interface for managing these virtual users and domains. With RATUUS you can easily create, modify and delete domains, users and aliases and all your actions are immediately reflected to Postfix configuration.

RATUUS is using the same database layout as famous PostfixAdmin so migration is quite simple and supported by RATUUS installer.
