Quite true, Hugo.
I personally find the lag in the .deb packaging very strange... Since
someone has made the effort to package the latest postfix, they should
be willing to do the same for MS... Oh well, "niche product" comes to

If I had the time, I would do it myself, just to give an easy
alternative... But since I don't really use any Debian derivatives in
production systems ... it's likely not going to happen. Not from me at

The only viable option, if one wants to use the latest PF and the
milter support it provides, is to use the source tarball and the
debian-ized init script that Jules provides separately. We've had
reports that this cures any problems between PF 2.4.x/MS ...
If one doesn't need the latest functionality of PF, one really don't
need upgrade;-).
