Thanks guys. The reason I haven't upgraded is that things are working 
now and I'd hate
to mess everything up. The main reason I want to upgrade Postfix is so I 
can use greylisting.
My current version doesn't have the check_policy_service feature. I'll 
probably just wait
a bit and do some testing before upgrading.

Thanks again,
