Hi Giorgos!

Actually Postfix setup is more easy than the others. So Postfix goes
with many spammers, in recent.  To tell truth, i want to take off such a
dishonor. Still clean MTA by the point is Exim, i think. Many free
software folks use that. But i won't change the outbond MTA (Postfix on
FreeBSD 4.11-STABLE). The outbond performs so many tasks for me. Only my
concern is local MTA. That is easy, no trouble though it fails.

Sincerely,
