I think you are a bit late, I already packaged ifmail (the -tx version) and
I'm going to upload it on master as soon as I will know the password for
my account [1]. I announced my will to package ifmail more than two weeks
ago on debian-devel and in that time I discussed some details with the
(proposed) fidogate maintainer and with some other people.
You can find a nearly finished version (I haven't uploaded there the last one)
at ftp://ftp.linux.it/pub/ILS/People/md/.

I followed the policy and wrote that in the postinst and required the user
to press a key.
Anyway I don't think this is a problem, before sending echomail with a
wrong address the user will also have to configure the Areas file and
his newsfeeds file.

[1] I have been subscribed to debian-private some days ago but I don't know
if my account on master has been created, should I ask someone?
