I have been wanting to take a peek at Postscript for some time now, especially since it has become the default for Mac OS X. The man page didn't look like a lot of fun, so I was happy to see this book come out.
This isn't a city telephone directory book like Sendmail but it does seem to be complete. Obviously Postfix is a lot less complicated than Sendmail, though that certainly doesn't mean it is less powerful or useful.
I liked Kyle's clear writing and that he included information on multiple domains, security and spam blocking. I had not picked up how easy it is to do filtering with Postfix, but Kyle has a whole chapter on that. The ease of doing that is a major attraction, I think.
Got something to add? Send me email.
