Could you expound further on what license issues you see with Postfix?
It's released under the IBM Public License 1.0 - viewable at -
and this seems like a good and reasonable open source license.

The main point of this license is that the code may be freely used,
freely distributed - including commercially - and that contributors to
the product must release their source.

What deficiencies do you (or others) see with the IPL?
