Just a FYI, its not a great idea to post your firewall rules w/
external/internal ips still intact.

Subject: mail problems was Re: apache problems

Thanks for the tips on postfix but they don't work for me. I have my mail
server behind a pf firewall box on a local ip

I have attached my pf.conf file so that you can see what it looks like, I
also have to tell spamd to use the hostname of the mail sever but when I use
the -h flag is sops working.

thanks for all the help
