10.4: Enable postfix without inducing insomnia
Authored by: npaust on May 16, '05 05:30:13PM

I've had really good luck using the shareware program PostfixEnabler to get postfix working on my laptop.

It lets you get postfix up and working to send and receive mail in about a minute with a decent GUI. Configuring a secure IMAP server only takes a few minutes more. I'm not sure that there's anything more that this hint can do.

10.4: Enable postfix without inducing insomnia
Authored by: t0fukrunch on May 16, '05 07:29:50PM

Good point. For anyone that wants to enable postfix features as painliessly as possible I'd suggest a program like PostfixEnabler.

Some reasons why I prefer doing things by hand in this case is that I'm interested in the BSD/UNIX layer (in fact this was a major factor in my buying a mac), and it's not always easy to figure out what exactly a 3rd party application is doing to your system.
