Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 49934
postfix needs to be kept
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:22:03 EDT
Red Hat 7.1 and below included postfix (with TLS support) on the Power
Tools CD. That has been removed from FairFax, which represents a serious
regression in terms of security and functionality.
Yes, please get postfix back. or I can live without sendmail :-).
Another vote in favor of postfix.
I know that providing sendmail is probably a necessity for backward
compatability, but encouraging the use of postfix ... even making it the default
can probably substantially reduce support costs related to horribe sendmail
I agree too. Clearly sendmail has to stay for now, but postfix seems to be the
best placed MTA to replace it in a future major release. Discontinuing it seems
to be a very serious regression.
still missing in beta 3

For 7.2, the decision is final. I'll close it DEFERRED to not rule out the
possibility in the future.
Just to add a vote in favour... I also agree that postfix should be
made standard part of Red Hat Linux in the future. IMHO it is
far superior to sendmail for most things. Fingers crossed for the
Reopening for new devel cycle
Bill is in charge of making this possible in Hampton.
