The Postfix default is 100s.
I don't really see why anyone would shorten this - that's a waste
of CPU cycles. In particular, stopping Postfix daemons after 10s
means that people don't have a clue about what they are doing.
The fact that it's now increased to 30s confirms my suspicion.
Technical correctness: the Postfix master does not terminate
processes. Processes terminate voluntarily.
