      This works because policystub.pl terminates after EOF. Under master's
      control, the smtpd remains connected to the policy service, which
      buffers output and therefore doesn't answer immediately.

        I'm running postfix on SuSE Linux 10.2. I have set relay_domains =
        $mynetworks.

        I am concerned because when I go into Webmin and look at the Mail Queue for
        Postfix, I see entries like this:

        merrowydfip@... postmaster@... 20.08 kB connect to
        com.com[216.239.113.101]: Connection timed out

        This could not have come from any of my users. Right now I have 4 messages to
        postmaster@..., and one to root@.... The status on one of them
        is "Connection Timed Out"

        I do get lots of spam, which I have managed to cut in half with postfix and
        spamassassin.

            Hi Doug

            What these look to possibly be is bounce messages? Although without
            seeing a full snippet of your mailq and particularly the mail logs its
            difficult to say.

            If you trace these addresses in your maillogs form which hosts were they
            received ? What is your domain? without all the pieces its a little
            hard for people to assist you. PLease revisit the welcome message you
            got when you joined the list for details on what kind of information to
            provide to aid in debugging.

              Well, I didn't want to take up too much time here. My main concern is that I'm
              not being a relay for spam.

              Here's a grep of /var/logs/mail. customosas.com, mentioned near the end, is
              one of my mail domains, the other being dougnc.com

              Thanks!
