Sure, good point and I'd not considered that at all. I had purely 
approached it from the angle of extending the existing postfix series of 
guides, but as you say there is no reason to exclude other MTAs.

Could I ask someone (Ralph maybe) to rename the page as I'm not sure how 
to do that, and maybe post the new link to this thread for the benefit 
of those following the discussions.

As an interim measure we could link to the amavisd-new documentation for 
other MTAs and by doing so note that it is not exclusive to postfix. 
I'll give some thought on restructuring to allow for easy addition of 
other MTAs into the document.
