This is project implements as a docker container a postfix mail server. It supports a configurable hostname, trusted hosts, proper
shutdown handling and mail relay (e.g. to mailgun).
By default, connected rfc1918 networks are detected and allowed. Local networks
(127.0.0.1, ::1) are also allowed.
You can optionally enable the Carrier Grade NAT, RFC6598 (100.64.0.0/10).
RFC1918 is still the default. RFC6598 does not include the RFC1918 subnets, because
CGN is not meant to be used at the same time as private subnets. If you really want
both, you'll need to override the entrypoint to include both arguments.
Rsyslog is started automatically and sends logs to stdout
/var/spool/postfixis the spool directory. Its also where postfix chroots to by default.
/etc/postfixis the configuation directory
You can customize the image behavior using environmental variables or entrypoint
