Is this an effort to convince FreeBSD.org to stop using postfix? ;)
$ host freebsd.org
freebsd.org has address 220.127.116.11
freebsd.org mail is handled by 10 mx1.freebsd.org.
$ telnet mx1.freebsd.org 25
Connected to mx1.freebsd.org.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mx1.freebsd.org ESMTP Postfix (Postfix Rules!)
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host
No, this is ain't a flame bait ;)
