Anyway: after 10 minutes of reading online docs and usign vi, I had configured
postfix to do what I had failed to do in the 5 years before with sendmail:
make the damned think NOT cause the resolver to trigger the dialup IP
connection when writing mail. And yes, I've listend to lots of people that
know and used all their recipes.
The side effect was that it needs about 10% of the cpu load when a bunch of
mails come in at the same time.
