No hard feelings, but... I do have 8 years of BSD experience, 4 years of Linux (RedHat).

And the one thing consistent with ANY app or daemon I've ever installed is that they all work from "localhost". This is just plain stupid on Postfix's part.

No offense but this is the stuff that's keeping Linux out of the mainstream market.

How do you think people would feel if they installed Windows ME and had to go to c:/windows/system32/mail.ini and edit the config to accept and send mail, then go to c:/windows/mail.conf and config it to allow users to open the application, and then go to c:\program files\mail and set the file to executable before opening Outlook Express.

And what if the config information you needed was as I have found Postfix to be...
Go to http://www.outlookproject.com/exec.php "read 3 pages of crap for the one paragraph you need" to get the mail.ini information,
go to http://www.mailsecurity.com/outlook "read 6pages of crap for the one paragraph you need" to get the mail.conf information
and then go to http://www.windowsme.com/modify/executables "read 2 pages of crap for the one paragraph you need" to find out how to set it to executable. ..now pray to God your being paid by the hour.

It's ridiculous, it's f***ing mail man.

Restrict by IP, and enable BlackHoles. That's all you should need. There should be a webtool page to enter allow IPs and then enter those IP's. Done.

You sent me to http://www.postfix.org/faq.html, but I have at least 6 sites that other people have sent me to.

The truly depressing part is that the Linux Security page on Postfix is just the comments
from Postfix's main.cf, I want to be their webmaster. Wait, I have an idea for a book
"How To Cut-N-Paste Your Way To Success". Maybe I should copy my windows.ini files
and make websites of them, yeah... then I'll put banners up every three inches and retire
to Aruba next year.

Quick answers to quick questions, That's why you use a mailing list.

But that's just my opinion, I may be wrong.
