Postfix Salt State Formula

postfix-config-management

The following formula was tested on Ubuntu and Debian however it would not take much work to test on other operating systems.

This state formula will install postfix and mutt. The postfix service will watch various configuration files for changes and restart accordingly.

This formula will also manage and watch the /etc/aliases file and invoke the newaliases command to initialize or re-initialize the alias database. This formula will also manage and watch the /etc/postfix/virtual file and invoke the postmap command to create or update a managed Postfix lookup table.

postfix/init.sls:

# Install mutt and postfix mutt packages.
#
# This formula supports setting an optional:
#
#  * 'aliases' file
#  * 'virtual' map file
#
# Both aliases and virtual use a pillar data schema
# which takes the following form:
#
# postfix:
#   aliases: |
#       postmaster: root
#       root: testuser
#       testuser: russell@example.com
#   virtual: |
#       example.com             this is a comment
#       test1@example.com       me@example.com
#       test2@example.com       me@example.com
