Dont take my word for it! Research others opinions and methods. Look at my references, look at Postfix.org's howtos, read the excellent books available (E.g. Kyle's or Hildebrandt's), search the web or read the properdocumentation.

If you refer to this howto in your own document, or find useful links, then let me know.


If you found this howto very useful, spread the word and help others?

If this howto was exceptionally useful why not donate me some beer money?

Or buy a postfix book using my amazon affiliate links further down?

Or buy a t-shirt from my t-shirt shop?

Otherwise send me a Thank You note?
