Thank you for your quick reply. I already have two postfix books one 
published in 2007 another one in 2009. Both covers dovecot in examples 
how to set up a mail server for enterprises, but this is not what i am 
looking for. I am looking for an equivalent to the courier and cyrus 
books on the market.

But again thank you for your reply.
