Using without MySQL

Good article, but it doesn't even speak about one important fact: it's possible to have postfix without mysql.

Mysql is quite heavy for what is required by postfix, and I want to manage users separately in an LDAP database. I'll see if it's possible to do it and perhaps update the wiki.

FAM is obsolete

Hi! Could you please update the article, since pam FAM (section 8) is now obsolete? People are supposed instead to use gamin now, which loads automatically.
I sort of followed the instructions blindly, skipping the fam part, and it worked beautifully.
I don't want to break that, so I'll leave the editing to someone more experienced with Postfix.

Step 1: Ensure DNS setup - What does this mean?

It sounds like you have to be running a dns server to run postfix, and although I'm just starting to work on learning postfix I don't think that's what is intended. Without any reference (and really the end reference is not enough), anyone reading the article is going to have to dig this information up - not necessarily a bad thing, but when Step 1 is something that sounds pretty intimidating, it probably should be fleshed out. Once (If) I figure this out, I'll stop back and edit it. Timm (talk) 00:17, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Make the info clear. You can recheck it now. -- Fengchao (talk) 04:08, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
