Log Message:
Updated mail/postfix to 2.3.5

- On Redhat Linux, a Postfix daemon could lock up while logging a
  warning from a signal handler before exiting. This is remedied
  by a low-cost re-entrancy guard for signal handlers that never

- Message headers longer than 65535 broke the Milter protocol.  To
  make matters worse the cleanup server could then dereference a
  null pointer.  When Milter support is enabled, the length of each
  message header is now limited to 60000.

- Several fixes to improve worst-case behavior of the (new) queue
  manager with multi-recipient mail. The queue manager now reads
  new recipients earlier from the queue file, instead of becoming
  starved while waiting for the slowest in-memory recipients to
  complete; and it now reads recipients in smaller chunks to avoid
  spending too much time not talking to delivery agents.

- With remote SMTP server tarpit delays larger than the Postfix
  SMTP client's smtp_rset_timeout (default: 20s), the client would
  get out of sync with the server while reusing a connection.  The
  symptoms were "recipient rejected .. in reply to DATA".

- On FreeBSD 6.2, some Postfix daemon processes would complain once
  with "Error 0" after "postfix reload" and then recover. This
  warning is now logged only when the problem persists.
