I found this video on Youtube. Does it help -

Thank you very much!

I look at it it's good but I want postfix load with Roundcube and not Gmail. I want postfix for a transfer agent, dovetoc and Roundcube for the browser.

Okay, DigitalOcean has a tutorial that explains how to set it up on UBuntu 12.04; but I think you could use the same instructions for latest versions of uBuntu. There should be a separate tutorial for setting up roundcube. Will search it later in the evening. All the best!
