I need help. I have been swamped lately and I feel that I don't have
the time to read up and do this properly so I would like to hire someone
for a few hours to help me move a mail server and dns for several
domains to a new server.
The mailserver is postfix and I want to move it to a jail (FreeBSD)
which is mounted on a local 127.0.0.255 address. The idea being that
all routing to the jails is handled by pf on the jailhost. I would
like to have imaps routed to the jail also (dovecot) and smtp-auth
routed to this jail also.
I have the jails set up and the pf routing working for other services.
I have mail working using the IP address. I've been meaning to move the
mailserver for a while, but I keep hesitating before switching the MX
records for the domains involved, I'm mostly worried about losing mail
if something goes wrong.
If someone has been through this knows about the technologies involved
and has a sane plan of attack. I would love to hire you for a few hours
to sit down together and look over my shoulder while we get this done.
I usually don't get cold feet when trying new things and changing stuff
around, but I've a bit too swamped to deal lately so I thought I would
ask for help.
