I haven't tried to convert my sendmail configuration (which isn't very
complex, I'd say) to postfix other than mentally (while reading through
al settings in main.cf), but here are the stumbling blocks I foresee:
- TLS. (At least the Postfix in -current seems to handle it, the one in
- A central mailer setup, with sender domain rewriting (i.e. sender
addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org converted into email@example.com)
( FEATURE(`allmasquerade') FEATURE(`masquerade_envelope')
FEATURE(`masquerade_entire_domain') ) and local delivery for the whole
domain (i.e. for *.falu.nl). Despite documentation of "mydestination"
speaking of "What domains to receive mail for" it seems it is about
hostnames rather than domain names, and I want to (be able to) spefify
whole domains (or at least one).
- milters: SpamAssassin/spamd in particular. I have seen web pages that
seem to explain things, but they don't appear to have per-user configs
and bouncing of spam with high scores at the DATA phase (i.e. before
finally accepting it).
- Bouncing of mail with invalid Message-Id headers (I wrote a simple
Header rule for it in sendmail:
# Add a rule to check for valid message ids.
# They must contain at least < @ . >
R< $+ @ $- . $+ > $@ OK
R$* $#error $: 553 Header Error
- Use of blacklists like postmaster.rfc-ignorant.org to bounce mail at
FROM phase (i.e. even before the DATA phase).
This may just be a lack of documentation in the obvious places, but
these issues remain questions after at least having fully read
/etc/postfix/main.cf and grepping though /usr/share/examples/postfix/*.
Maybe I'll think of more.
