Postfix, a mail server that started life at IBM research as an alternative to the widely-used Sendmail program, is now at version 2.10.0.

Highlights of Postfix 2.10.0:

• Separation of relay policy (with smtpd_relay_restrictions) from spam policy (with smtpd_{client, helo, sender, recipient}_restrictions), which makes accidental open relay configuration less likely. The default is backwards compatible;
• HAproxy load-balancer support for postscreen(8) and smtpd(8). The nginx proxy was already supported by Postfix 2.9 smtpd(8), using XCLIENT commands;
• Support for the TLSv1 and TLSv2 protocols has been added, as well as support to turn them off if needed for inter-operability;
• By default, Postfix now uses UNIX-domain sockets instead of FIFOs, and thus avoids MTIME file system updates on an idle mail system.
