Postfix is an open source mail transfer agent that started life as
an alternative to the widely-used 'Sendmail' program. Postfix
attempts to be fast, easy to administer, and secure, while at the same
time being 'sendmail'-compatible enough to not upset existing users.
Postfix runs on AIX, BSD, HP-UX, IRIX, LINUX, MacOS X, Solaris,
Tru64 UNIX, and other UNIX systems. Its features include Transport
Layer Security (TLS), advanced content filtering, support for numerous
database backends, and mbox- and Maildir-style mailboxes.
It is known for its resilience against buffer overflows and ability
to handle large amounts of email.
