Postfix on Panther. Yet another follow-up

Category : Technology/followupPostfix.txt

Okay, just one more thing about Postfix on Panther (from 7B74 onwards). I've noticed that I lose the ability to send mail out after the system wakes up from sleep. So I made this change to /etc/hostconfig - I set MAILSERVER=-YES- (from MAILSERVER=-AUTOMATIC-) and the problem goes away. It's been working great since.

Actually, I'm trying to find the least amount of things I have to change to make Postfix work from a stock Panther installation. I think I'll still do a Postfix Enabler - for what it's worth. Maybe a set of things that go from Basic to Advanced (with SMTP-AUTH) to Pro (with POP and IMAP).
