Mail transport agent
Postfix is a popular, scalable, and secure MTA written by Wietse Venema. Venema is a network security expert well known in the free software community for his 2008 FSF award. It came as no surprise that Postfix was built ground up with security in mind. It is highly secure, but also flexible and easy to administer.
Due to its modular design, Postfix can be configured to only use parts that are required in each use-case and as such conserves resources and operates fast.
Postfix is a drop-in replacement for Sendmail. It implements a compatibility interface with some options silently ignored.
