Not true. A number of processes are chrooted, but not all. Please look
at /etc/postfix/master.cf (IIRC). This is a standard feature of Postfix.
Sven, do you want to chroot *all* processes? Postfix is supposed to be
secure out of the box (except for programming errors, as we recently
saw :-( ). So improving Postfix security should be done inside of
Postfix. You may want to you the Postfix mailing list (warning: lots
of traffic!) and ask there.
