1) Use gmane to do your list serching.
2) DON'T use that debian package provided... 4.55.10 is severely out
of date. It will likely end you in trouble. You can't fight bleeding
edge SPAM/malware with trailing edge versions;).
AFAICS the best otpion is to use the "source"/Solaris/... tarball from ... You should be able to find an init script to
use there to. Then use the usual postfix instructions (look through
the ones on the official site, read the MAQ (everyone should do that
at least once:) and finally the relevant wiki pages... It sounds a
lot, but really isn't that much).
