For DNS Enabler, I'm going to include the ability to set up a secondary (slave) DNS Server.
I was going to add to DNS Enabler the ability to notify slave name servers (when something changed on the master server) when I realised that BIND 9 (that OS X uses) does that automatically. So the time would be better spent doing something that sets up those secondary name servers themselves.
For Postfix Enabler, I'm going to do these : mail queue management, RBL sites (though I hate it when they block mail from dynamically assigned IP addresses so I won't suggest those that do), SMTP authentication over SSL between mail servers, enforce SSL for SMTP authentication, alternate port numbers to contact the mail server, default mynetworks_style to "host" (i.e., allow mail to be relayed only if it originated from the server or if it has been smtp-authenticated) and let the user choose to relax that restriction to include mail from any machine on the same subnet, and also support for Fetchmail.
