Topic: Does iRedMail auto-start MTA server immediately after install?
As I mentioned in a different post, I am configuring a replacement server for one which failed today (it was 12 years old, that's like 120 human years, it had a good life).
There is mail sitting in spools across the Internet waiting for this dead server <myserver.domain.com> to come back online.
I have created a new VM which has the same name and therefore will inherit the MX records for the dead server.
If I install iRedMail and the MTA service immediately starts BEFORE I have a chance to add users, I believe that the MTA (Postfix?) will say "I don't know who this user is" and bounce the message.
Is there a way to install iRedMail such that the MTA service does not start until I tell it to? (i.e. after I add all the users)
