Hi George. You seem to have a similar setup as I have here. I found
www.postfixvirtual.net most useful! Do have a look there.
I just had a 12 hour fight to get all running again after a upgrade from
Mandriva 2008.0 to 2008.1. That should have been trivial but I had all
sort of issues with amavisd missing perl modules. Well, finally solved
that one again.
