that looks pretty sweet.  i'm sure it simplifies the whole process and i
will most definitely use it. but i'm still a masochist and i like to do
things the hard way ;-).

actually i just really want to learn the guts and details of how a system
like this is configured as a whole.

my thought was that the presentation would actually get down into the
specifics of doing this by hand.  so you could understand and configure
all of the pieces with first hand knowledge of what's happening behind the
scenes and how they all interrelate.

that way. in the event that something every goes wrong with mail in a
vpostmaster setup, i can use my knowledge/skills to figure out why the
problem is occuring, where to look to fix it and how to manually tweak /
configure the underlying config files, etc.
