Thanks for your advice, it worked without any problems.

I tested it on a spare FreeBSD server. Now I want to update and patch
postfix on my production server. Is there a way I could do that without
having to shut off my production server for too much time?

You can easyly do it yourself. CVSup your ports collection to get the
latest postfix port, then run 'make patch' and select the desired
options (sasl, ...).

Now download the patch to the ports work directory, gunzip and apply it
(patch < patch-file).

All you have to do now, is to resume the build (cd ..; make build).
