LOL, I still remember back in the v3 and v4 days.  :)  It's incredible
the changes that have been made since the late 90's when I started using
qmail and vpopmail.  Almost a decade later and I'm still using it...I've
been hearing more and more admins moving to Postfix...what benefits does
it offer over qmail?  I'm not looking to start a flame-war.  I'm just
asking for information.  And apparently there are no tools like vpopmail
for Postfix...so would it make sense to fork the vpopmail project to
Postfix?  Or is that not a possibility?

As I said, not looking for a flame war.  I've been using qmail for most
almost a decade now and it's always worked well, but I'm finding more
and more systems like dSPAM integrate easily into things like Postfix,
but with qmail I had to do a lot of work integrating it properly (which
I've done without the use of simscan...and works quite nicely)
