You'll want to look at the following website for postfixadmin stuff:


Roughly, the install process is:

1. Create a database user in mysql and create the database
2. Install the postfixadmin tgz contents somewhere under /var/www
3. Fire up your webbrowser and point it at the postfixadmin setup.php URL

If you follow the install directions, the postfixadmin page will create 
your database for you.  After which you can start populating the 
database with domains, mailboxes and aliases.

(Installing RoundCube is a similar process.)
