postfix-nochroot - change /etc/postfix/ to not use chroot SYNOPSIS
postfix-nochroot DESCRIPTION
Renames /etc/postfix/ to /etc/postfix/ and creates a new /etc/postfix/ file with every service configured to not use chroot. Every modified line is commented. It also restarts Postfix (to apply the change) and rmoves the unused chroot directories /var/spool/postfix/{etc,lib,usr} . Using a chroot environment makes upgrades more difficult and gets in the way when running SE Linux (without actually providing any security benefit in a SE Linux system). SEE ALSO
