Thanks for the reply. It now seems to work fine.
A couple of things also seemed important though.
1. I use petidomo to manage mailing lists.
Using the suggested postfix setup from the page below creates errors from
petidomo. I had to add a line in /etc/postfix/main.cf:
alternate_config_directories = /etc/postfix.in
otherwise the mail error log gets very large and petidomo does not deliver
mail to members of the lists
2. To get MailScanner to work without reporting errors whilst using
BitDefender, I needed to change the line Minimum code status in
mailscanner.conf from supported to beta.
So thanks for your help
