Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/08

Some Postfix configuration guidelines

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/08

Not just for Postfix are the first two guidelines:

  • Change one thing at a time
  • Save known working configurations

For the latter, I’m using etckeeper pushing to an external git repository hoster.

For Postfix are the others from [WayBackPostfix Configuration Guidelines.

One tip that’s missing, but saved my life numerous of times:

In /etc/postfix/main.cfg do not use this line ever:

inet_interfaces = $myhostname

If the resolving (through DNS or hosts file) of $myhostname fails for any reason in the future, then Postfix will not start at all, but in stead emit a fatal error like this:

/usr/sbin/postconf: fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for

Specify exact interfaces in stead, like any of these:

inet_interfaces = all

inet_interfaces = localhost

inet_interfaces =

Navigation bar notifications for Google web products will go away on March 7, 2019. Via Manage your notifications – Google Account Help

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/08

After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar.

[WayBackManage your notifications – Google Account Help has more details, but it does not look good.

More Google stuff is dying, almost every month now. For a list of dying products see: [

For now: [WayBack] “Manage your Notifications”: After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar. If you’d l… – Edward Morbius – Google+

“Manage your Notifications”: After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar. If you’d like to receive similar notifications in the future, you can update the notification settings for your individual Google products.

As usual, it’s not clear whether or not this will affect the notifications widget on G+ itself. Google’s standards for clarity in exposition remain uncorrupted. Which is to say: entirely inadequate.

Otherwise, the article addresses Google Photos, Hangouts Chat, and Google+ (G Suite users).

Update: Further close reading suggests that Consumer Google+ will lose Notifications on March 7:

Note: Google+ notifications are available for G Suite users only.
