13 maildir is mail storage, not delivery. I use claws-mail with postfix and
14 it's just a matter of setting the SMTP server to localhost, or wherever
15 your postfix server lives.
17 How do you collect mail? It's probably easiest to let postfix store
18 incoming mail in a local maildir store and run a local IMAP/POP server -
19 I use dovecot for this.
