      Have you followed those instructions?

      AFAIK, you can bind 'postscreen' to a specific interface by specifying
      a hostname or an IP address in front of the port name or number in
      'master.cf'; inet .... postscreen

      And then have a regular Postfix instance on a seperate address; inet .... smtpd

      If you cannot simplify your setup, you may need this;


      Other than that, post proof that options are not honored anymore. The
      most likely cause is that you are trying to apply something to
      'postscreen' that is only supported for 'smtpd'?
