Postfix – A Complete Failure!
Yes this is a rant.
- I used to like postfix
- Until now I never had the need to do deeper analysis of the postfix logs
- I always thought exim was way too complicated
2 of the 3 points above changed right now at this very moment. I still think exim is way to complicated but that's probably because I never had to care about configuring it. However we need to analyze the log data of email deliveries, receptions, failures and whatnot.
"How hard can it be?" - at least that was my first thought. It can be very hard.
- the documentation of postfix' log format: here and here
- the documentation of exim's log format: here
Postfix just died for me from this very moment....Server!/Horror
