1Purpose of this document
2========================
3
4This document provides a road map of the Postfix mail system source
5code distribution.  I suggest that you
6
7- take a few minutes to read this file,
8
9- review the RELEASE_NOTES file for incompatible changes,
10
11- and then proceed with the INSTALL instructions.
12
13Introduction
14============
15
16This is the public release of the Postfix mail system. Thank you
17for your interest in this project. Send me a postcard if you like
18it. My postal address is below.
19
20You must read the LICENSE file, if you didn't do so already. A copy
21of the LICENSE must be distributed with every original, modified,
22complete, source, or binary copy of this software or parts thereof.
23I suggest that you keep a copy of the file in /etc/postfix/LICENSE.
24
25Purpose of the Postfix mail system
26==================================
27
28Postfix aims to be an alternative to the widely-used sendmail
29program.
30
31Although IBM supported the Postfix development, it abstains from
32control over its evolution. The goal is to have Postfix installed
33on as many systems as possible. To this end, the software is given
34away with no strings attached to it, so that it can evolve with
35input from and under control by its users.
36
37In other words, IBM releases Postfix only once. I will be around
38to guide its development for a limited time.
39

53Acknowledgments
54===============
55
56This release could not have happened without the input from a team
57of competent alpha testers. Their names appear in numerous places
58in the HISTORY file. I appreciate the input from my colleagues at
59the IBM Global Security Analysis Laboratory:  Paul Karger, Dave
60Safford, Douglas Schales, and Leendert van Doorn.  I also appreciate
61the support by Charles Palmer under whose leadership I began this
62project, and who had the privilege to name the software, twice.

73Roadmap of the Postfix source distribution
74==========================================
75
76The RELEASE_NOTES file describes new features, and lists incompatible
77changes with respect to previous Postfix versions.
78
79The INSTALL file provides a step-by-step guide for building and
80installing Postfix on many popular UNIX platforms.
81
82The COMPATIBILITY file lists features that Postfix does or does
83not yet implement, and how well it works with other software.
84
85The HISTORY file gives a detailed log of changes to the software.
86
87Point your browser at html/index.html for Postfix documentation
88and for hyperlinked versions of Postfix manual pages.  Expect
89to see updated versions on-line at http://www.postfix.org/
90
91Point your MANPATH environment variable at the `man' directory (use
92an absolute path) for UNIX-style on-line manual pages.  These pages
93are also available through the HTML interface, which allows you to
94navigate faster.
95
96The PORTING file discusses how to go about porting Postfix to other
97UNIX platforms.
