E-mail server, minimalist approach

I am curious about the best practices of hosting other people's e-mails
in FreeBSD, using Postfix and MySQL if necessary.
I used to use Postfixadmin but lately I feel sick when using badly laid out
web user interfaces like that. Maintaining stuff graphically not only makes me
want to change and redesign everything I see---it also makes it difficult for
me to store my configurations in my configuration repository.
Is there a minimalist approach to this?
(the following is off topic)
My minimalist approach to using MySQL for instance, is to stay away
from phpMyAdmin and just create my databases like this:
CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS database;
GRANT USAGE ON database.* TO database at localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
GRANT ALL ON database.* TO database at localhost;
Those are 3 lines that go well into my mysql.txt file, further subjected to
encryption, DVD burning and then burrial somewhere deep inside the
Sahara desert. Thanks folks!
