Hi List,

Would the Wiki be interested in a very simple guide to setting up 

I'm no expert, but have been learning postfix recently, and would be 
more than happy to write one based on my own setup/experience. As 
there's so many different scenarios for which postfix could be 
configured, I'm thinking just a basic guide for a working mail server to 
get new users up and running, and from there they can tweak to their own 
environment. I'm thinking broad appeal (hopefully) for those who don't 
know where to start.

I documented my own setup as I went (below) so something based on this 
to give an idea:


...and if that goes down well, then maybe a section on anti-spam 
settings (_restrictions) available in postfix to complement the recent 
postgrey greylisting guide.

As always, I'd welcome input/comments from those more experienced!
