[CentOS] deprecations leading up to C8

When I migrated our mx boxes from CentOS 5 to 7 I made the leap to postfix.

I built a test server with postfix etc on it and threw everything I could think of at it before going live.

The key is, like in learning a new language, to start thinking in postfix terms instead of thinking in sendmail terms.

It takes a while to 'get it' but I'm glad we made the link.

We search, read as many people's howtos as you can (caveat - they are rarely 100% accurate), and test, test, test before going into production.

Was reading the long list of things being deprecated in the RHEL 8 release notes t'other day, and saw my old friend sendmail on the list.

I've stuck by her because I've learned how she likes to be stroked to get the best out of her, and quail at the thought of taking on a new MTA and having to learn it all all over again.

But I guess I'm going to have to, soon or late, probably sooner than later. :(

Can anyone point me to resources specifically for helping us ignorant folk in converting all the arcan-ity in sendmail.mc into something equivalent for Postfix?

Thanks in advancce!
