I apologize for the email being html-only, not my intention. I'm having trouble getting Thunderbird to do this right as I have to manually do this for every outgoing email.

Can you please elaborate on what you mean with "problems of their own"? Anything specific comes to mind?

This whole movement to docker is a big set of trade-offs that I'm still researching.

Best regards,

     ?p?Dear postfix experts:?/p?
     ?p?While setting up postfix in a docker container, I have been
       getting the error "fatal: unknown service: smtp/tcp" when
       attempting to send an email. I investigated the issue, and it
       seems it has something to do with setting up chroot inside of
       docker container?/p?
     ?p??a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" 
     ?p?The easiest solution to this problem was to just disable chroot,
       which worked fine. I'm considering disabling chroot for all the
       postfix master services. Is this a bad move considering that
       postfix is running in a docker container? I would appreciate your
       insight into this.?/p?
The chroot feature makes post-exploitation of bugs (in Postfix,
libraries, etc) more more difficult, because there are fewer things
that an attacker can play with. For example no set-uid root programs,
no files in /proc, and no file system races against privileged programs.

One could argue that containers provide a minimized environment,
but that is not necessarily the case. The ones that do minimize
sometimes come with crippled libc implementations that introduce
problems of their own.

By the way it is rude to post html-only email to a mailing list.
