                       Postfix: past, present and future

 In the 12 years since its initial release by IBM, the open source Postfix
 mail system has become part of the email infrastructure.  The system has
 proven itself on personal systems and on ISP infrastructures with 10s of
 millions of mailboxes.  After Postfix reached completion by 2006, the focus
 of development has moved from building new functionality towards making the
 system more extensible and more survivable in the face of changing threats
 and requirements.  In this presentation Wietse will review lessons learned,
 current developments, and some speculation about the future.
