The official docs for both Postfix and Dovecot are exemplary. Speaking firsthand, I know that my installation issues were 100% pure PICNIC.

And which you choose depends primarily on two things: the type of backup you want to run, and the filesystem you're using.
If you're using ext3, it doesn't get better than partimage
for a full-partition backup.
If you're using ext4, you may want to investigate partclone
, but verify
the backup once you've made it. (I've had partclone backups fail.)
OTOH, if you just want to backup your files, rsync
are both excellent choices (though they operate quite differently).

Dilbert's _Left_Nut has forgotten more about DNS than I know. So I agree with whatever he says
But if your needs are fairly simple, maybe look into DNSMasq
