Postfix by Richard Blum( )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Japanese and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Postfix is a viable alternative to sendmail - currently the most common Mail Transport Agent (MTA) - and is being increasingly accepted in the administration community. One of the greatest advantages of Postfix is that it offers higher performance than other standard-compliant MTAs. Sendmail has been diverging from the "UNIX model" of small discrete code units that do very specific, if interlocking, tasks, so it is only to be expected that alternative MTAs would crop up. This book offers broad coverage to instruct both the large ISP and the small business network administrator on how to install and configure a full featured Internet email system with a minimum amount of expense. This is possible using the Linux Operating System which supplies all of the necessary server software, the Postfix email software package, and Public Domain client email software on the client PC's. This book also includes educational information that can be used by network administrators in using Postfix to connect an office email server to an ISP. The Postfix email software package is widely used on the Internet without any books documenting how to install, configure, and operate the email server.; This book provides all the information needed to run Postfix effectively and efficiently
