MTA Solutions: qmail vs sendmail vs Postfix vs Exim

Up
vote
Down

A comparison review of four open source mailserver solutions.
Each of these four widely-used MTAs have broadly similar features. All of them can handle large amounts of mail; can interact with databases in many formats; have an extensive knowledge of the many SMTP variants in use; are not trivially exploitable; have the source code available in a free manner; have third-party documentation available, etc etc. There are some assumptions implicit in what follows. If you are looking for a product that presents an administrative interface and performance results similar to Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Notes, this document is not for you.

Send Postfix virtual aliases to /dev/null...
...sometimes you want to use a "do-not-reply" type of email address, and you don't want to have to mass-delete the mailbox at intervals.

The usual solution is to forward to /dev/null, and in a local-only setup you could do that in /etc/aliases:

do-not-reply: /dev/null

However, if you're using Postfix virtual domains, it gets a little more complicated. With virtual domains/users, you can't forward mail to a file. It must go to a user or an email address, like this:
