Hello *,

After running an outdated version of sqmail for a few years, I decided
to move to Postfix 3.8 which is better maintained, has
more eyes on the code, and a good track record as well.

Migration was almost trivial, the only interesting thing is that a
.qmail file to forward e.g. to public-inbox-mda needs an explicit env call:

# cat ~public-inbox/.qmail-default 
|HOME=/var/lib/public-inbox ORIGINAL_RECIPIENT="$" /usr/bin/public-inbox-mda
# cat ~public-inbox/.forward 
"|env HOME=/var/lib/public-inbox /usr/bin/public-inbox-mda"

Postfix sets ORIGINAL_RECIPIENT out of the box.
(We use explicit HOME for reasons I don't want to go into here.)
