Hmm.  Suppose I'm using the mutt MUA, and I have a Postfix instance
running in my local machine.  So mutt does submission to Postfix
locally, and Postfix delivers to the MTA that my company has set up for
me.

What port should my local Postfix use to deliver to my company's email
server?


With Magnus proposal to ban email from @postgresql.org addresses that
wasn't delivered through mail.postgresql.org, I would not be allowed to
use my local Postfix server.  Instead I would have to configure mutt to
deliver through mail.postgresql.org whenever I'm using my
alvherre(at)postgresql(dot)org identity.  This would be a pain whenever the
network was down, for example.

Am I misunderstanding something?
