postfix queue question
 
We're looking to replace our Windows SMTP server (purely outgoing mail) with postfix.

Two questions:

Does postfix's queue work like Microsoft where you can just drop an email into it and postfix will send it out? I tried to do that in the /var/spool/postfix/incoming directory and nothing happened.

Also, can postfix handle queues of 200,000 and more well?

Haven't tried it, and didn't research much ... but the fact that this perl cpan module
came up as the first hit in a google search for
Code:

postfix inject mail directly into queue directory
lends itself to suggest that you can't?


And yes, 200K isn't a problem...
