10.3: Enable the postfix Mail Transfer Agent
Authored by: dreness on Oct 29, '03 06:39:19PM

If MAILSERVER is set to AUTOMATIC (which is the default), then postfix-watch runs at startup. Its job is to watch the mail queue and fire up postfix when needed, then kill after a period of inactivity (1 hour, I think). This seems to be the resource conservationist approach, and may help on lower end systems (thanks jkh ;)
