They all make perfectly good sense and are time test and approved. No
disrespect, but I question yourr credentials for attempting to operate an MTA.

There are several publications describing the fundamentals behind "openssl"
and various "MTAs", etcetera. You might want to brush up on them before
posting again. As a bit of advice, I would highly recommend that you NOT post
on the "postfix" forum. Wietse would chew you up alive.
