Note that you cannot specify multiple hostnames or addresses to achieve fallback or load balancing behavior. If you need fallback hosts when the normal relay server is unreachable, take a look at the fallback_relay parameter. Refer the Other useful configuration parameters section for additional information on other parameters. Choosing network interfaces The inet_interfaces parameter decides the network interfaces that Postfix will use for both listening to new connections and sending out messages.

Once you have downloaded and unpacked the archive in a suitable directory (for example)/usr/local/src, you will notice that the Postfix build system does not use GNU autotools and therefore does not have the configure script that one normally finds in the root directory of the unpacked source code archive. The Postfix build system will automatically take care of this step. Do not worry if you want to install Postfix in some non‑standard location, you will have an opportunity to set various installation directories later.

Normally, the only changes made to the official release are bug fixes and fixes for portability problems. The experimental release is usable in production environments, but the code is of course less tested, and configuration parameters and their semantics may change between releases. If you run the experimental builds, you are more likely to run into bugs and other oddities that the stable release should not have. On the other hand, you get access to new features before those using stable builds.
