Review: The Book of Postfix: State-of-the-Art Message Transport
Source: Pete O'Hara - Posted by Pete O'Hara   
I was very impressed with "The Book of Postfix" by authors Ralf Hildebrandt and Patrick Koetter and feel that it is an incredible Postfix reference. It gives a great overall view of the operation and management of Postfix in an extremely systematic and practical format. It flows in a logical manner, is easy to follow and the authors did a great job of explaining topics with attention paid to real world applications and how to avoid many of the associated pitfalls. I am happy to have this reference in my collection.

The introduction states that this book is aimed at systems administrators who are not security experts, but have some responsibility for ensuring the integrity of their systems. That would seem to cover most sysadmins.
