Sendmail is the "King of the Hill" of the open source mail transport world, but Postfix is gaining steam. Wietse Venema, creator of TCP Wrapper and co-developer of TCT (The Coroner's Toolkit), wrote Postfix to create a faster and more secure mail transport application.
Setting up and maintaining any email server application is no walk in the woods, and for those unfamiliar with the finer points of mail trasport or not comfortable working with Unix / Linux, it can be quite daunting at first.

This book provides what you need to know to get from knowing nothing to having a fully functional Postfix server up and running.
