Bwahahaha!  Defining transports and whatnot is an exercise in frustration,
and there are definite issues with where you can hook things into (where the

<shrug>  Maybe there are sekr1t spells you can use to make postfix easy to
configure, but the lack of a decent reference manual is enough to turn me

everything you ever wanted to know about exim" manual.
