Inconsistent Startup file names
Authored by: dlhull on May 11, '05 06:15:16PM
It looks like Tiger has replaced this with /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.postfix.master.plist, and as far as I can tell, the only thing you have to do to enable it is to set MAILSERVER=-YES- in your /etc/hostconfig file.

Yes, but if you examine that file, you'll see that it calls master with the argument list -e 60 which tells it to exit after 60 seconds. So whenever a new file appears in /var/spool/postfix/maildrop, launchd starts master to process it, but master then shuts down again.
