MBSE BBS - Internet Gateway - Postfix setup.

Of course you need to make all these changes as root. Add the mbmail program as service to the postfix system by adding two lines to
# Postfix master process configuration file.  Each line describes how
# a mailer component program should be run. The fields that make up
# each line are described below. A "-" field value requests that a
# default value be used for that field.
# Service: any name that is valid for the specified transport type
# (the next field).  With INET transports, a service is specified as
# host:port.  The host part (and colon) may be omitted. Either host
# or port may be given in symbolic form or in numeric form. Examples
# for the SMTP server:  localhost:smtp receives mail via the loopback
# interface only; 10025 receives mail on port 10025.
# Transport type: "inet" for Internet sockets, "unix" for UNIX-domain
# sockets, "fifo" for named pipes.
# Private: whether or not access is restricted to the mail system.
# Default is private service.  Internet (inet) sockets can't be private.
# Unprivileged: whether the service runs with root privileges or as
# the owner of the Postfix system (the owner name is controlled by the
# mail_owner configuration variable in the file).
# Chroot: whether or not the service runs chrooted to the mail queue
# directory (pathname is controlled by the queue_directory configuration
# variable in the file). Presently, all Postfix daemons can run
# chrooted, except for the pipe and local daemons. The files in the
# examples/chroot-setup subdirectory describe how to set up a Postfix
# chroot environment for your type of machine.
# Wakeup time: automatically wake up the named service after the
# specified number of seconds.  Specify 0 for no wakeup. Presently,
# only the local pickup and queue manager daemons need a wakeup timer.
# Max procs: the maximum number of processes that may execute this
# service simultaneously. Default is to use a globally configurable
# limit (the default_process_limit configuration parameter in
# Command + args: the command to be executed. The command name is
# relative to the Postfix program directory (pathname is controlled by
# the program_directory configuration variable). Adding one or more
# -v options turns on verbose logging for that service; adding a -D
# option enables symbolic debugging (see the debugger_command variable
# in the configuration file).
# In order to use the "uucp" message tranport below, set up entries
# in the transport table.
# In order to use the "cyrus" message transport below, configure it
# in as the mailbox_transport.

In change or add the line:
relay_domains = $mydestination,
The fidonet address will be your fidonet address of course. If you have more fidonet aka's, add them as well seperated with commas.

Next you need to add mbmail to the transport file.

# /etc/postfix/transport
# execute "postmap /etc/postfix/transport" after changing this file
# Local destinations
#		local:		local:		local:
# Fidonet mailers at this machine. Test on several strings to make sure
# it will catches everything.
z1                      mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet
.z1                     mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet
z2                      mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet
.z2                     mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet

z5                      mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet

z6			mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet
.z6			mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet
fidonet			mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet
.fidonet		mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet		mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet		mbmail:f2802.n280.z2.fidonet

Don't forget to run postmap /etc/postfix/transport. Now all files are changed, run postfix reload to activate the changes.
