i don't like sendmail very much, but have been happily using postfix=20
for years now,

on a freebsd mailserver with jails i was wondering whether the
following is possible :

- all incoming email goes to 1 jail which only runs
  sendmail + milter and blocks all email with .gif attachments
- sendmail then let's through all other emails with some transport-map
  which doesn't need individual aliases (per user)
- other jails (separate jail for lists and email) accept the email
  via postfix

can sendmail do this ? or is there other mailserver-software which can
block gif and hand over all email to other jails with postfix

i'm asking this for the following reasons :

- i have a jail with postfix+mysql+spamassassin+maildrop,
  esp. the maildrop-part took me many many hours to figure out,
  (turned out that courier maildrop default mysql-support was dropped
  in favour for courier authdaemon+mysql-support)
  it's working fine now, so i prefer not to add more to this jail,
  but i'd like to stop .gif-images attached now
- it looks like postfix needs per user aliases for transport-situation
  to virtual domains (or am i missing something ?)

possible or not good ?

thanks in advance for useful info!
