I was looking at the EuroBSDCon 2017 presentation on OpenSMTPD, and I was wondering how it differs from the dedicated high-volume MTA that wound up being written for the ESP. What are the features that are needed for high volume, but otherwise don't make sense? Sincerely, Demi M.

Only the latter belong to a specific message, the former can contain multiple transactions, so logging a specific message id for them is somehow wrong (unless you restrict the MTA to perform only one transaction per session). PS: some MTAs have/log ids specific to each part of the protocol: session, transaction, recipient (and even specific to the server and client side if needed).
Hi folks, apparently there are 2 different kinds of lines in /var/log/maillog: Lines with a message id, and lines without. Very painful. The lines without message id seem to start with "smtp-out:", eg smtp-out: No valid route for [connector:10.125.142.10->[relay:example.com,smtp,sourcetable=,heloname=mail.example.de],0x0] Do you think it would be possible to clean this up? I would like to grep for the message ID to get the *whole* set of log file lines related to this message, and to ignore the unrelated smtp-out lines. Thanx in advance Harri
