From Yoder the Sheepherder

I don't usually put up the nice things we get in the mail. But this one's real nice. It captures the essence of what we've been trying to do with our Macs :

Many thanks for your Postfix Enabler.

I've been running my own mail and web servers for a few years now on Linux machines running Sendmail and Cyrus or Sendmail and Dovecot, but recently I began trying different combinations to get a feel for them and most recently was running Postfix and Dovecot on Fedora. My machine went belly up with hardware failures and all I had left was an old G-3 iMacDV 400 we bought new about 6 years ago. I was in a bind, with a full schedule and simply no time to put into building a Mac server from scratch. I frantically began Googling anything I could find on building mail servers on OSX and stumbled on a message board entry that offhandedly mentioned your product and had a link to your site. Initially, I didn't want to take a chance on your Postfix Enabler:

First, because I wanted to do it myself.
And, second, because I didn't think it would work.

A day later, I paid for and downloaded your product, and in less than 5 minutes I was up and running. Now all that's left is me kicking myself for not doing it sooner. You have saved me untold hours and I'm very grateful. Postfix Enabler is a great application and well worth the $10.

I'm now looking at your DNS Enabler and am fairly certain I'll be getting that soon as well.

Macs have been our desktop machines for years, but from now on they are my servers as well.
