"Fantastic piece of software"

May 28, 2008  |  By josiah1--2008

 |  Version: Postfix Enabler 1.2.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've been using this for over 2 years and have never had any problems with it. I think it does what it says it does, and for ten bucks? how can I complain? If you have problems with port 25 use gmail! it's an encrypted port which is never blocked!

"Good for tech savvy types, but not as easy to use..."

Summary

...as described
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
If you have any sort of problem with this shareware, Bernard Teo is great about responding to emails, but I find his documentation and explanations (both online and via email) difficult to understand and unclear.

I don't want to speak for everyone, but for me as a "Mac person" I need simple software, that works and when it does not, I need clear, simple, step-by-step instructions how to resolve issues. I would suggest that he get some help improving his documentation as this would make Postfix Enabler easier to use.

Right now, since I cannont understand his instructions for getting around an ISP that blocks port 25 or how to set up my own mailserver, Postfix only works from my office. At home I still have to manually select my local ISP's smtp when MacMail cannot send using "localhost."

The whole reason I bought this was so I would never have to do that annoying task everytime I change locations/ISP's on a roving MacBook Pro. Postfix Enabler and Bernard Teo have, unfortunately, been unable to help.

Perhaps one day someone will explain it to me and when they do, it will be worth the $10. Untill then, close, but no cigar.

"Good App, but MailServe even more worth it!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This has been an extremely functional and useful app for me for a while. I tried hacking around with Postfix for a while and got parts of it working but yearned for the one-click and it works functionality of this app (the customization can come later as you become more advanced). I recently paid to upgrade to same developers next version MailServe and I couldn't be happier with it's Alternate ports (25 doesn't work most places anymore), Real-time Black Lists for spam, Virtual Aliases (if you host more than one domain and both want info@insertdomain.com). Even after breaking it a couple times already by messing around in the config files, there's always the Red Cross at the top of the app that restores everything to default and you can try again. Not to mention the excellent responsive help from the developer who has responded within minutes sometimes when I can't solve something.

"A real power tool"

May 07, 2005  |  By kevinash

 |  Version: Postfix Enabler for Tiger 1.1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As we say in Britain, "it does exactly what it says on the tin." It's easy to use, it works, and it's fully supported - in short, it's worth every penny. My only request would be that if you change something in one of the text fields, that it inform you before quitting that it offers to restart Postfix for you to act on the new configuration.

"A real gem"

Summary

Beats the heck out of installing POP and IMAP servers from source and then configuring postfix by hand!

Admittedly the mail server it sets up is a tad basic (personally I'm just using it as a secondary IMAP store anyhow, so that's no big deal), but whaddya want for 10 bucks?! ;-)

The developers should be commended - a really well thought-out little app.

easy to use, and haven't had a single problem with it so far. just wish I had found this before spending hours getting sendmail sorted, and having to adjust it with each OS upgrade.

"Painless way to enable Postfix"

On the road in Asia with my pb, I grew tired of problems accessing my ISP SMTP server and having to use webmail. After a few minutes with this enabler I now can use the mac email client again. Highly recommended.

"doesn't fix permissions"

February 25, 2004  |  By Gary Swanson

 |  Version: Postfix Enabler for Panther 1.0.9

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Great concept, but it didn't work for me. I got many permissions errors. I emailed the authors, but haven't heard anything. I used instructions similiar to the ones listed on another post (http://www.reitter-it-media.de/software/osxpostfix.html#panther), and then Eudora ran fine using postfix. I'll look for an update that addresses this problem.

What's new in version 1.2.2
Added a radio button (the Relay Mail button in the Mail Server panel) for the user to make sure that the server is not acting as an Open Relay when it's placed directly on a broadband line, as opposed to being behind a router or Airport Base Station.
