On my home server, I disabled IPv6 on the postfix smtp client. The smtp
server still accepts incoming IPv6 connections.
I did not see any problem since then.

minor version since the introduction of postscreen itself in 2.8. At
last we can have the benefits of postscreen zombie detection without
the pain of greylisting.
Gmail and just about every big proprietary mail provider out there
maintains lists of their hosts on dnswl.org. Postscreen with a
relatively simple DNSBL configuration, including a negative point
lookup for list.dnswl.org, will make this all very easy and low
maintenance. (Consider signing up for dnswl.org yourself; it costs
only a few minutes of your time.)
