Summary0007361: Possible to have Postfix listen on localhost only
DescriptionOnly the app-mail-routing modifies postifx with:

/usr/sbin/postconf -e "inet_interfaces = all"

If app-mail-routing is not installed, Postfix listens only on localhost.

Zarafa pulls in app-mail-routing as a other app???

I think if you install app-smtp (not app-smtp-core), it should run:

/usr/sbin/postconf -e "inet_interfaces = all"

The mail antispam, antivirus, and greylisting apps (Kaspersky, ClamAV, SpamAssassin, Postgrey) also pull in that app-mail-routing dependency (indirectly via the app-mail-filter dependency). That covers the case where the SMTP server is used as a mail gateway. If an end user just has SMTP installed (no IMAP, no AV, no Antispam, etc.), then it's considered an outbound only server (e.g. something that a web server app like Wordpress could use).

I guess there's a use case where an end user would only use ClearOS as a pure SMTP outbound mail server. Unusual, but certainly possible.

Use case where this was an issue is that he wanted printer/fax machine to be able to send mail out via the server...that's it.

Sounds like we need to expose parameter on Postfix config.
