OK, I don't want to start a war here; however, I saw "R Wahyudi
<rwahyudi at>" original post on the Postfix forum. I did not see a
copy of his 'postconf -n' output. Without that information it would have been
virtually impossible for anyone to have accurately diagnosed his problem.

IMHO, he would be well served to post that information, as well as detailed
information regarding his network on the Postfix forum so that his problem
could be properly analysed. Altering the default settings as much as he
apparently has done does not seem correct.


No matter how rich you become, how famous or powerful, when you die the size
of your funeral will still pretty much depend on the weather.
