    I run four Postfixes (one of them with Courier-IMAP), and one Qmail
    with vpopmail.

    Postfix is IMO easier to install and administer, but doesn't have a
    point'n'click interface.

    It also looks like Postfix is a much faster moving target than
    Qmail, e. g. the virtual address/mailbox support has been evolving
    quite a lot, and the configuration changed in Postfix-2.

    I wouldn't recommend Courier; I don't know the SMTP part of the
    pack, but the IMAP server is pretty admin-hostile in that it doesn't
    log almost anything at all, so when you run into trouble, you're
    left to guessing, and hacking the source.

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
