Following is a combined list of the features that I use on a Postfix installation
supporting several mail domains. I had some issues when trying to implement DKIM on a
single process processing all mail, but after splitting it into three processes handling
outgoing preprocessing, outgoing signing, and incomming, things have been running quite
On the single system there were issues with determining which outgoing mail to sign, and
which incomming mail to check. I did get it working with a lot of help from Murray, but
it was a bit fragile. Other than the debuging bits, I currently don't plan to use any of
the other features.
The area that needed the most help, was installation on a non-sendmail system. Quite a
bit of frustration trying to get all of the necessary bits to get a clean complile.
