10.3: Enable the postfix Mail Transfer Agent
Authored by: MtnBiker on Oct 29, '03 12:57:20PM
After my posting above I looked at my main.cf and the PostfixEnabler does things differently (shown below). I do have the ability to send mail via localhost, so assume I have Postfix enabled at least for sending. The PostfixEnabler only claims to set up sending.

Here's what the Enabler adds to main.cf:
###Start PostfixEnabler###
alias_maps=hash:/etc/postfix/aliases
alias_database=hash:/etc/postfix/aliases
mydomain=myDomain.com
myorigin=myDomain.com
myhostname=postfix.myDomain.com
###End PostfixEnabler###
I don't see the Enabler made any changes to the master.cf file.

Does the procedure outlined in the original posting do more or does it just do it differently? Any comments on which is better or what the side affects are?

Thank you for the original posting. I prefer the text editing versions of making these changes such as used in the original posting. Many post complex grep Terminal commands that are hard to read.

PS: Waiting for edit postings in this group.
